Research presented at the conference in France showed that gene mapping studies in M. truncatula apply directly to related species such as chickpea and lucerne, plus more distant species such as soybean and peanut... Marker assisted selection is a short step away for economically significant Australian legumes such as lupin, lentil and chickpea... Professor Oliver"s new Australian Research Council project will use M. truncatula synteny to develop maps and define MAS tools for lupin, chickpea, lentil, faba bean and lucerne...

The deputy director of the Perth-based Centre for Legumes in Mediterranean Agriculture (CLIMA), Dr Clive Francis, will start trialling 25 new pasture legumes this year, from seed collected in 2005 in Armenia... Dr Francis says many of the landrace and wild legumes in remote areas of Armenia and surrounding regions hold significant agronomic potential for pasture/crop rotations in Australia... Dr Francis says the Caucasus is the birthplace of many of the world"s legumes: "There are 125 species of Astragalus (part of the legume family that includes peas, beans and lentils) in Armenia alone," he says...

The collation of the information into a recently developed database has provided a summary of the 2005 and 2006 reports... Higher rate observed at site 1 is due to the soil having a higher soil carbon levels (1.2%) compare to site 2 (0.8%) and lower amounts of net immobilisation... When all stubble fractions are incorporated into the amount soil inorganic nitrogen immobilised can be up to 45 kg N/ha...

Pulse and oilseed legumes such as soybeans and peanuts form associations with rhizobia bacteria, causing nodules to form on roots... The nitrogen (N) fixed by the legume is strongly linked to the productivity of that crop... Initial results showed that the growth and yield of soybean was significantly improved by inoculation with Group H rhizobia (strain CB1809), but the form in which the inoculant was applied made little or no difference to productivity - even under suboptimal moisture conditions after planting...

Very high mineral fertiliser prices have encouraged farmers to increase nitrogen levels in the soil with legume crops, reducing or excluding the need for nitrogen fertilisers in following crops... More agronomic research needs to be carried out on: nitrogen fixation at different crop stages, and investigation of different varieties and advanced breeding lines to determine if there are differences in nitrogen fixation rates herbicides for broadleaf weed control herbicide and other management options for herbicide resistant grass weeds seeding times and seeding rates for current varieties in different areas vetch production for grain and hay with and without nitrogen fertilisers... The project will include the two main vetch species, common vetch ( Vicia sativa ) and hairy vetch ( Vicia villosa )...
