When assessing nodules for chickpeas, plants that have nodules similar to those in the top two photos will not be adequately fixing nitrogen... Plants with nodule numbers similar to the bottom two photos will have adequate nitrogen fixation... Growers should look for: the number of nodules and their location on the plant: nodules around the crown of the plant (where root meets shoot), where the seed and inoculant would have been, and down the tap root and along lateral roots...

When assessing nodules for chickpeas, plants that have nodules similar to examples A and B will not be adequately fixing nitrogen... Plants with nodule numbers similar to examples C and D will have adequate nitrogen fixation... Dr Ryder says nodulation around the crown is important in supplying N for early growth but nodules on the lateral roots become important as the plant matures and sets seed...

Lastly the strain is selected for its ability to survive in the soil between seasons... Let's consider if there is a need for inoculation of the crop with free-living N2-fixing organisms... The production of cluster roots and release of organic acids is extremely energy expensive; the plants strategy is to acquire P at any cost (Lynch and Ho 2005)...
