N2 fixation and its value to soil N increase in lupin, field pea and other legumes in south-eastern Australia



N2 fixation and its value to soil N increase in lupin, field pea and other legumes in south-eastern Australia



Australian Journal of Agricultural Research 40(4): 791-805



N2 fixation and its potential contribution to increasing soil total N were estimated in field-grown Lupinus angustifolius and peas in 21 trials at 10 locations in New South Wales and Victoria, during 1984-87. Chickpeas, faba beans and Medicago truncatula were included at some sites. Across experiments there were differences in annual rainfall (267-646 mm), soil N (0.02-0.20%), soil pH (4.3-8.0) and sowing date (24 Apr.-16 June).
