THE GORE SUB-STATION OF THE GRASSLANDS DIVISION
AbstractUntil 1938 the Grasslands Division carried out all its critical studies at Palmerston North. A substation was then established on the Crop Research area at Lincoln, in Canterbury. In 1945 the Gore substation was established. A most important reason for the establishment of sub-stations is to be able to continue studies in different climates and to investigate any problems specific to a particular region. Climate is a reflex of many interacting factors such as temperature, rainfall,. length of day, wind, etc.
