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 ...
Diverse bacterial taxa inhabit root nodules of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) in New Zealand pastoral soils
Background and aims: Pseudomonas spp. have previously been isolated from lucerne nodules. The aims of this study were to: 1) investigate the microbiome within a lucerne nodule; and 2) assess the ability of two Pseudomonas ...
Increased lucerne nodulation in acid soils with Sinorhizobium meliloti and lucerne tolerant to low pH and high aluminium
(CSIRO Publishing, 2018-10)
Acidic conditions with damaging levels of available aluminium (Al3+) currently limit lucerne (Medicago sativa) production on soils in the New Zealand high country and in large areas of Australia. Increased lucerne nodulation ...
Effectiveness of three inoculation methods for lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) in two Canterbury soils
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2015-07-03)
The efficacy of ALOSCA®, coated and peat seed inoculant treatments on the nodulation of lucerne sown in two soils in Canterbury, New Zealand was investigated. The commercial inoculant was Sinorhizobium meliloti strain ...
Nodule occupancy by Rhozobium leguminosarum strain WSM1325 following inoculation of four annual Trifolium species in Canterbury, New Zealand
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of The Royal Society of New Zealand, 2013)
The genotype of nodule occupants in four annual clovers – balansa (Trifolium michelianum), Persian (Trifolium resupinatum), gland (Trifolium glanduliferum) and arrowleaf (Trifolium vesiculosum) – was investigated. The ...
Yield components of lucerne were affected by sowing dates and inoculation treatments
(Elsevier on behalf of the European Society for Agronomy, 2019-02)
This study analysed the effects of sowing dates and inoculation treatments on yield components of rainfed lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crops grown at Lincoln University, New Zealand. Crops were sown in a split-plot design ...
