The effect of planting date on maize: Silage yield, starch content and leaf area
Four field experiments were established in the Waikato and Manawatu regions over two years to determine planting date (PD) influence on growth, silage yield (SY) and starch content of seven maize (Zea mays) hybrids. Silage ...
Rate equation analysis of frequency chirp in optically injection-locked quantum cascade lasers
(Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2014)
The frequency chirp characteristics of an optically injection-locked quantum cascade laser are theoretically investigated. The key parameter chirp-to-power ratio (CPR) is analytically derived from a full rate equation ...
The true cost of milk: Environmental deterioration vs. profit in the New Zealand dairy industry
Over the past two decades, major increases in production have occurred in the New Zealand dairy industry. This has required the use of externally sourced inputs, particularly fertiliser, feed supplements, and irrigation. ...

Freshwater is New Zealand’s greatest asset and is a taonga of paramount importance. It is valued for its contribution to biodiversity, recreation, the economy and overall well - being of New Zealanders. New Zealand’s rivers, ...
Constructing reparameterization invariant metrics on spaces of plane curves
Metrics on shape spaces are used to describe deformations that take one shape to another, and to define a distance between shapes. We study a family of metrics on the space of curves, which includes several recently proposed ...
