Effects of lime on the growth and nodulation of 4 grain legumes


Australian Journal of Soil Research 20(3): 265-268
Effects of lime on the growth and nodulation of 4 grain legumes
Using an acid sand with differing proportions of added ground limestone, a range of soil pH levels was achieved from 5-9.2. Four winter grain legumes [faba beans (Vicia faba CPI 22613), peas (Pisum sativum cv. Buckley), lupins (Lupinus angustifolius cv. Uniharvest) or chickpeas (Cicer arietinum CPI 56289)] were grown for 8 wk before being sampled for nodulation [inoculation with rhizobia], dry matter and N production. Chickpeas appeared the least affected by the range of soil pH values and Ca levels in terms of root and shoot growth; all the legumes produced the greatest number of root nodules at pH 7 or 8. Top dry weight production in lupins was maximized at pH 6, and declined rapidly above pH 7; field peas, chickpeas and faba beans all showed maximum above-ground dry weights between pH 7 and 8.
