The Extended Legend of the NZLRI also includes estimates of livestock carrying capacity (stocking units (SU)/ha) for each of the mapped LUC units.
We acknowledge that several recent studies suggest higher DMI of a standard SU of ~10% on flat land (Nicol and Brookes 2007; Parker 1998); however, these are post the assessment of the carrying capacity provided in the Extended Legend of the NZLRI.
The APSIM-simulated DMY for the three regions showed a similar trend to the DMI estimated from NZLRI based on the potential carrying capacity and an assumed annual DMI of 550 kg/SU.
(2000) model were also tested against values predicted using NZLRI data.
This value is about one-third of that calculated from previously available information using the NZLRI coverage and the national soils database (Tate et al.
