Relationships between relative seasonal pasture yields (total, spring, or summer/autumn) and soil physical properties were investigated. Dairy farm data were collected from trials over 7 years. There were few significant response relationships between total relative yield and each soil physical property at each soil depth, from 0 to 20 cm. Macroporosity (air-filled porosity; pores >30 μm), percentage of pores >300 μm, and total porosity at both 0–5 and 5–10 cm soil depths all had highly… CONTINUE READING
