Her research focused on improving the phosphorus use efficiency of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) when grown with white clover (Trifolium repens). Rebecca’s academic background in terrestrial and freshwater ecology, and knowledge in Agri-systems has made her a welcome addition to the Waikato based team.
