LUCERNE-GROWING IN THE AUCKLAND DISTRICT
AbstractDURING the past few years a marked increase in lucerne acreage in the Auckland district has taken place. Whereas in 1929 a total of 2,667 acres was devoted to this crop, the acreage in 1935 had risen to 5,248. Of these totals, North Auckland had 210 acres in 1929 and 429 in 1935, while the acreages for South Auckland in the corresponding years were 2,457 and 4,819. These figures suggest that, so far as North Auckland is concerned, the crop is relatively unimportant at the present time.
