Inoculating legumes is a minor cost for a potentially substantial payoff in terms of extra grain or biomass yield and extra nitrogen in the soil... Only about half the area in Western Australia grown to field pea, vetch and lupin crops is inoculated, leaving plenty of room for growers to improve the nitrogen fixing potential of these crops... One of these, Inoculating legumes: a practical guide, has been through two editions in 18 months because of heavy demand...

Biserrula has emerged out of the CRC for Legumes in Mediterranean Agriculture (CLIMA) and the National Annual Pasture Legume Improvement Program (NAPLIP) as an exciting prospect for wheatbelt pastures in southern and western Australia... Biserrula appears to have some protection against false breaks of season (germinating rains followed by drought) as seeds soften in the late summer-autumn period... Biserrula is a high-quality forage, can set seed under high grazing pressure and has an acid-tolerant rhizobia which can persist on soils with a pH as low as 4.0...

FINAL REPORT DAW00032: Improving weed management with biserrula in the pasture phase of WA cropping systems - Dr Clinton Revell, DAFWA.. In October, the biserrula treatment had higher legume content (FOO and % of total) than the other treatments except for the subclover treatment, which had a non-significant difference in the legume % (Table 10)... At the end of the growing season in 2003 there appeared to be preferential grazing by the sheep resulting in the biserrula-based pasture having the highest legume content and lowest grass and broadleaf content...

Large population studies have shown people who eat beans and soy foods at least four times a week are less likely to develop heart disease... Research examining the effects of pulse consumption has indicated that eating legumes significantly lowers blood pressure in people with high blood pressure, as well as in people with normal blood pressure... Analysis of eight different trials as part of the study found that when one cup of legumes, such as faba beans, lentils or chickpeas, was substituted for other foods of the same energy value, blood pressure was reduced by 2.25 millimetres of mercury...

Mean three year gross margin $/ha with crop type and end use grown in 2009 followed by CorrellA wheat in 2010 and 2011 at sand site... Table 1 illustrates that all the break crop options evaluated at Junee in 2011 had higher gross margins than barley or wheat except chickpea, and the pea and lupin grown for brown manure rather than grain... It is assumed that rhizobial numbers in the soil were high enough for the crop to reach its potential...
