" National Rhizobium Program - Managing rhizobia to maximise N fixation by legumes in agriculture UMU00032 Start Date: 01/07/2008.. The NRP was established in 1998 primarily to make sure growers continued to have access to high quality legume inoculants containing strains of appropriate rhizobia to maximise biological N fixation in pulses and other legumes in crop rotations, and to provide the scientific basis for information and guidance about the practice of legume inoculation... Published outcomes of the project include one handbook, 19 refereed journal papers reporting significant research outcomes, five refereed conference papers and 47 international conference abstracts published...

Inoculating legumes with rhizobia can enhance nitrogen fixation and represents a minor production cost with a potentially substantial payoff in terms of increases in legume nodulation, grain and biomass yield, nitrogen fixation and post-crop soil nitrate levels... Each year Australian growers sow inoculated legume seed on about 2.5 million hectares, equivalent to 50 per cent of the area sown to legumes... The GRDC has also published a booklet Inoculating Legumes: A Practical Guide which is available at www.grdc.com.au/GRDC-Booklet-InoculatingLegumes and the Rhizobial Inoculants Fact Sheet , available at www.grdc.com.au/GRDC-FS-RhizobialInoculants ...

New GRDC-funded research by the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) has confirmed that field peas are unlikely to respond to inoculation, unless they are grown on acidic soils or where there is no recent history of the crop... SARDI soil biologist Dr Liz Farquharson says the study found Rhizobium inoculation did not cause a grain yield response in field pea grown on soils where there was a history of growing the crop and neutral to alkaline pH... High if there is no history of pea, vetch, bean or lentil crops, or soils with pH (CaCl 2 ) below 6.0 and high summer temperatures (over 35 o C for 40 days)...
