rotational benefit

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
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for Year 2 are after a 6-month summer fallow and for Year 3 are after an 18-month summer-winter-summer fallow (source: unpublished data of W. Felton, H. Marcellos, D. Herridge, G. Schwenke and M. Peoples)..

Using winter cereal/summer crop and winter pulse/summer crop rotations are key strategies for reducing crown rot pressure and the incidence of root lesion nematodes (RLN) in the northern region... Summary of a decade of experimental results from the northern grains belt showing the rotational benefits of chickpeas on yield and grain protein levels of the following wheat crop + fertiliser N (75-150kg N/ha).. Results from six sites in northern NSW showed that chickpeas provided an average soil nitrate benefit equivalent to 42kg nitrate-N/ha and an average grain yield benefit equivalent to 1.0t/ha for the following wheat crop (figures 1 and 2)...
