  • Water use efficiency of grazed pastures under contrasting diversity

    Pronger, Jack (The University of Waikato, 2017)
    Agriculture must increase food production to support a growing global population; however, this required increase in production is potentially restricted by freshwater supply for irrigation. Consequently, relying on ...
  • Cadmium accumulation in agricultural soils

    Salmanzadeh, Mahdiyeh (The University of Waikato, 2017)
    Cadmium (Cd) has accumulated in New Zealand (NZ) soils as a result of phosphate fertiliser application. Cadmium is a biotoxic heavy metal and can be adsorbed by soil and enter the human food chain. Three objectives were ...
  • Temperature and Moisture Sensitivity of Soil Microbial Respiration in Adjacent Irrigated and Non-Irrigated Soils

    Petrie, Olivia Jane (University of Waikato, 2017)
    Irrigation is a commonly used management practice that is crucial for increasing plant growth and production, especially in areas prone to drought such as the Canterbury region of the South Island, New Zealand. Historically, ...
  • Carbon dioxide and methane emissions from the Te Arawa lakes of Rotorua, New Zealand

    Santoso, Arianto Budi (University of Waikato, 2016)
    One of the biggest issues confronting humankind today is global warming due to the rapidly increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, namely CO₂, CH₄ and N₂O. The Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) has ...
  • Temperature Sensitivity of Soil Respiration

    Robinson, Jasmine May (University of Waikato, 2016)
    Biogeochemical cycles, such as the carbon (C) cycle, are being continuously affected by anthropogenic activities such as carbon dioxide (CO₂) release from fossil fuels and the decomposition of soil organic C following some ...
