Strain diversity of rhizobia occupying lucerne and Caucasian clover nodules in high country soil in New Zealand
In New Zealand, low soil pH coupled with toxic levels of aluminium limit establishment and maintenance of legumes on about 500,000 ha of farmed high country land (Moir and Moot 2010). This is attributed to poor nodulation ...
Lucerne dry matter and N-fixation, when sown with or without lime and inoculant
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015-11)
This paper quantifies the effect of inoculation and lime on lucerne growth and nitrogen fixation over the establishment and following season. The field experiment at Ashley Dene, in Canterbury, had an initial soil pH of ...
Dry matter yield, root traits, and nodule occupancy of lucerne and Caucasian clover when grown in acidic soil with high aluminium concentrations
(Springer Verlag on behalf of the Royal Netherlands Society of Agricultural Science, 2017-07)
Aims and methods: Lucerne and Caucasian clover dry matter were measured in response to recommended lime and capital P inputs for six years in an acidic soil in the New Zealand high country. The initial three years of the ...
