New Zealand Weeds Database

Massey University hosts an online database of over 70 of New Zealand's more troublesome weeds found in agriculture and horticulture.

Each page has information on how to identify the featured weed (with photographs), as well as information about the weed and some suggestions on how best to control it.

Dame Ella Campbell Herbarium MPN

Massey University’s Dame Ella Campbell Herbarium in Palmerston North houses approximately 75,000 plant species used for scientific research.

Herbaria are used for studies related to ecology, geography, systematics, and taxonomy.

The majority of our collection comes from New Zealand, but there are also many specimens from around the world.

The herbarium is open to the public at certain times.

Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre

Massey's Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre (FLRC) provides practical solutions to problems and issues in the primary production sectors of New Zealand, and mechanisms for information transfer between science, industry, policy and regulatory bodies concerned with primary production.

Services include professional development short courses tailored to the needs of science, industry, policy and regulatory bodies concerned with primary production, consultation on a wide range of issues, and a comprehensive analytical service for soil, plant, water (including effluent) and fertiliser materials.
