" January 2013 rhizobial inoculants FACTSHEET northern, southern and western regions HArveSTing THe BenefiTS Of inOCuLATing LegumeS inoculating legumes with rhizobia can achieve substantial increases in legume nodulation, grain and biomass yield, nitrogen fixation and post-crop soil nitrate levels... KEy Points The benefits of inoculating legumes with rhizobia (soil bacteria that fix nitrogen) have been recognised in Australian agriculture for more than 100 years... The gains are highest when the legume is grown in nil-rhizobia or low-rhizobia soil...

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)...

Pulse and oilseed legumes such as soybeans and peanuts form associations with rhizobia bacteria, causing nodules to form on roots... The nitrogen (N) fixed by the legume is strongly linked to the productivity of that crop... Initial results showed that the growth and yield of soybean was significantly improved by inoculation with Group H rhizobia (strain CB1809), but the form in which the inoculant was applied made little or no difference to productivity - even under suboptimal moisture conditions after planting...
