pre crop fallow

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
Data from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) long-term rotation experiments in northern NSW showed a positive effect of no-tillage on productivity and N2 fixation of chickpea (Felton et al. 1998; Marcellos et al. 1998; Herridge et al. 1998)... The difference between N2 fixation of chickpea and fababean is highlighted in Table 2, using data from the NSW DPI long-term rotation experiments and commercial crops in northern NSW... One of the objectives of the long-term no-tillage experiments of NSW DPI (Felton et al. 1998) was to compare chickpea and fababean in terms of N2 fixation and rotational benefits...

Nitrogen fixation activity of legumes is strongly linked to productivity and suppressed by soil nitrate... Data from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) long-term rotation experiments in northern NSW showed a positive effect of no-tillage on productivity and N2 fixation of both chickpea and fababean (Felton et al. 1998; Marcellos et al. 1998; Herridge et al. 1998)... Nitrate levels for Year 2 are after a 6-month summer fallow and for Year 3 are after an 18-month summer-winter-summer fallow (source: unpublished data of W. Felton, H. Marcellos, D. Herridge, G. Schwenke and M. Peoples)..
