The vetch project will focus on the development of vetch varieties for national grain and hay/silage production... Indications and recommendations from producers and vetch users in Australia directed this project to concentrate more on breeding vetch varieties for use as a hay/silage in low, mid and high rainfall areas, especially where farmers wish to replace irrigated lucerne... The sites will be organised with pilot farmers to have large strips of vetch for grain, hay/silage, cereal (s) and fallow...

New GRDC-funded research by the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) has confirmed that field peas are unlikely to respond to inoculation, unless they are grown on acidic soils or where there is no recent history of the crop... SARDI soil biologist Dr Liz Farquharson says the study found Rhizobium inoculation did not cause a grain yield response in field pea grown on soils where there was a history of growing the crop and neutral to alkaline pH... High if there is no history of pea, vetch, bean or lentil crops, or soils with pH (CaCl 2 ) below 6.0 and high summer temperatures (over 35 o C for 40 days)...

Evaluation of the effect of vetch grain on lamb growth Two experiments were conducted to investigate the effect of vetch grain on lamb growth... In the second experiment, lambs were additionally given very low quality oaten hay (10kg/group/day)... Lambs were introduced to grain commencing at 100g/head/day; an additional 100g was fed each day until supply reached the level of 15g/kg live weight...

Economic: In the project, a number of lines were assessed or selected with higher grain and hay yields than present varieties in areas of 330 to 500 mm/yr of rainfall... Lamb feeding experiments using Morava and Rasina (< 0.65% toxin in grain), showed extremely good growth... Project results showed 54 kg, 98 kg and 145 kg/ha were fixed after vetch for grain, hay and green manure, respectively...

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 )...
