The success of collecting Rhizobium can only be measured after the cultures are used to inoculate plants growing in nursery rows in Australia... The project has delivered new germplasm for pasture plant improvement in southern Australia by undertaking the collection of seed - and their Rhizobium where appropriate - of priority Trifolium species and other important pasture legumes in short season regions of the Mediterranean basin... Initial results show early flowering plants of Biserrula pelecinus collected from the Canary Islands, Trifolium species and Biserrula pelecinus ssp Leiocarpa collected from Eritrea, B. pelecinus and Ornithopus roseus collected from Morocco and Trifolium clypeatum (helmet clover) and Trifolium glanduliferum collected in Lebanon...
