Soil physical quality under cattle grazing of a winter-fed brassica crop

Drewry, John; Paton, R J

Description

This 2-year study investigated the effects of winter brassica forage crop grazing treatments on soil physical properties on a Fragic Pallic soil, susceptible to compaction, in South Otago, New Zealand. Soil physical measurements including bulk density, percentage of pores >300 μm, macroporosity (air-filled porosity; percentage of pores >30 μm), total porosity, air permeability, and saturated hydraulic conductivity (K sat) were taken 1.5 and 4 months after completion of winter grazing in year 1,...[Show more]
