SHORT-ROTATION RYEGRASS, IN THE AUCKLAND PROVINCE
AbstractShort-rotation ryegrass has been fairly closely observed since its introduction to the Auckland Province about seven years ago in farmers' fields and ,in trials. To define its place on .farms in this province it must be compared with Italian ryegrass and perennia! ryegrass. These two plants have played and important part in the agricultural development of the province and high production has been obtained on those farms only where ryegrass is the dominant species in the pastures.
