Inoculating legumes is a minor cost for a potentially substantial payoff in terms of extra grain or biomass yield and extra nitrogen in the soil... Only about half the area in Western Australia grown to field pea, vetch and lupin crops is inoculated, leaving plenty of room for growers to improve the nitrogen fixing potential of these crops... One of these, Inoculating legumes: a practical guide, has been through two editions in 18 months because of heavy demand...

Nitrogen fixation by crop legumes reduces the need for fertiliser nitrogen (N) and emissions of nitrous oxide... Benefits from legumes can be maximised by using high-yielding legume varieties that are not constrained by poor management, insects, disease, weeds or nutrient deficiencies... amounts of n Nitrogen fixation by crop legumes has now been estimated in many studies...

Inoculating legumes back pocket guide.. Inoculating legumes with rhizobia can enhance nitrogen fixation and represents a minor production cost with a potentially substantial payoff in terms increases in legume nodulation, grain and biomass yield, nitrogen fixation and post-crop soil nitrate levels... Inoculating legumes - The Back Pocket Guide was distributed to northern growers in the Grains Research and Development Corporation's (GRDC) Groundcover magazine in the September/October 2013 edition (Issue 106) and can be downloaded at www.grdc.com.au/GRDC-BPG-InoculatingLegumes ...

Each year Australian growers sow inoculated legume seed on about 2.5 million hectares, equivalent to 50 per cent of the area sown to legumes... The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has released a handbook that aims to increase knowledge of legumes and legume nodulation in farming systems, and the effective use of inoculation as a key farm practice... The handbook Inoculating with legumes: A practical guide can be downloaded at www.grdc.com.au/GRDC-Booklet-InoculatingLegumes..

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)...
