Final Report: CSP00097 - Managing crops, animals and crop disease in mixed-farming systems based on dual-purpose wheats

Plain text source: 
The project has shown that: grazing does not increase the spread of Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus (WSMV) in wheat crops... In summary, grazing at 67.3 dry sheep equivalents (DSE)/ha for 31 days or at 33.7 DSE/ha for 62 days significantly reduced canopy leaf area index but also resulted in significantly increased photosynthetic rates post-grazing in young, fully expanded leaves... In summary, results showed that the fraction of incident light intercepted by grazed crops was reduced to only 10-20% compared with 95% in ungrazed crop...
