An investigation of problems associated with the inoculation of soybeans (Glycine max (L.) Merrill) with Rhizobium japonicum (Kirchner) Buchanan
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1965)
If soybeans are to have a place in New Zealand farming, system, they must be grown economically, in terms of yield produced and costs of production. Inoculation with rhizobia will no doubt help to achieve this aim if the ...
Caucasian clover (Trifolium ambiguum) rhizobia persists in New Zealand soils for over 42 years
(Lincoln University, 2017-11-14)
Most legume species can fix atmospheric N2 via bacteria (rhizobia) in root nodules, thus allowing them to colonise low nitrogen soils. The South Island of New Zealand’s high country is made up of highly weathered low ...
Nitrogen fixation and site nitrogen balances of fertilised dryland lucerne (Medicago Sativa L.) at Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand
(Lincoln University, 2014)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) is a high value perennial forage legume. It is deep-tap rooted, has high water use efficiency and is tolerant of drier environments. It produces high quantity and quality dry matter (DM). Yet, ...
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 ...
Identification and effectiveness of rhizobial strains that nodulate Lupinus polyphyllus
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2014)
Lupinus polyphyllus plants were heavily nodulated at 10 field sites sampled across the South Island. Twenty-two bacterial isolates from these nodules formed functional nodules on L. polyphyllus indicating that rhizobia ...
