Potential for bioenergy generation and nutrient recycling in horticultural production systems in New Zealand
(International Society for Horticultural Science, 2016)
Renewable energy can be produced from a number of sources, including plant biomass. One of the most efficient technologies to generate bioenergy from plant biomass is on-farm anaerobic digestion (AD) producing biogas. ...
Antigen-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes target airway CD103+ and CD11b+ dendritic cells to suppress allergic inflammation
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-01)
Allergic airway inflammation is driven by the recognition of inhaled allergen by T helper type 2 (Th2) cells in the airway and lung. Allergen-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) can strongly reduce airway inflammation, ...

(NZ Grassland Association, 2012)
Geostatistical determination of soil noise and soil phosphorus spatial variability
(Elsevier Masson, 2017-09-28)
This research studies the effect of stratifying soil samples to try and find a suitable depth to establish a geospatial relationship for a practical soil sampling grid in New Zealand hill country. Cores were collected from ...
Reaction of introduced bean (phaeolus) accessions to the infestation by thielaviopsis basicola (berkeleuy & broome) under natural epiphytotic conditons
(Federal State Budget Scientific Institution, 2015)
A periodic phytopathology field monitoring was conducted on 35 introduced common bean (Phaseolus) accessions at Maritsa Vegetable Crops Research Institute in 2014. The epiphytotic disease black root rot on the bean crops ...
Genetics of alternative definitions of feed efficiency in grazing lactating dairy cows
The objective of this study was to estimate genetic parameters for measures of energy conversion efficiency (ECE), energy balance (EB), net energy intake (NEI), net energy of lactation (NEL) and body weight (BW), within ...
Assessment of manuka provenances for production of high ‘unique manuka factor’ honey
(Agronomy Society of New Zealand, 2013)
Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) honey with high methylglyoxal content, commonly expressed as unique manuka factor (UMF®) content, has strong antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Consequently, there is a strong demand ...
