New quality check for legume inoculants to help growers The introduction of a new Code of Practice for the manufacture of legume inoculants is expected to assist growers in avoiding costly crop losses due to poor inoculant quality... The Code of Practice means inoculant products are to be manufactured under an agreed set of protocols and testing standards, and those that do will carry a quality registered trademark logo... The Code was prepared by the Australian Inoculants Research Group (AIRG) of Industry & Investment New South Wales' Primary Industries division in collaboration with Sydney University and inoculant manufacturers Becker Underwood Pty Ltd, New Edge Microbials Pty Ltd and Novozymes Biologicals Australia Pty Ltd (a joint venture between the GRDC and Novozymes Biologicals)...

Experiments showed that if seedlings (e.g. serradella) are allowed to grow for 18 days before being inoculated with rhizobia, the time it took for nodulation to occur was significantly reduced from 12 to 6 days... At the culmination of this project, no further research was necessary as the inoculant manufacturers were satisfied with the modified time it took to release results when aged seedlings were used in the MPN estimates... One of the outcomes of this paper was to set guidelines and establish a management committee to guide the process of ALIRU's transition into its new role...

Sandy Montague (Managing Director).. Eleven different strains of legume inoculants were produced in commercial quantities and these received the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries (NSWDPI) Australian Inoculant Research Group (AIRG) formerly Australian Legume Inoculant Research Unit (ALIRU)) approval for commercial use... Seed inoculation has traditionally been achieved by mixing the peat product with water to form a slurry that is spread over the seed in a mixing vessel or seed transfer system prior to planting...

The price of carbon-based fossil fuels, used in the production of nitrogenous fertilisers, is expected to increase substantially in the future... There is an ongoing need to ensure that Australian agriculture evolves with a reliance on legumes that are effectively nodulated and that the benefits of nitrogen fixation from legumes for the farming systems are maximised... Maintain the NSW DPI collection of Rhizobium and non-Rhizobium inoculant germplasm held at AIRG for current and future release for the production of grain / pasture legume and selective non-legume inoculants used in Australian agriculture.5...
