Nitrogen fixation by pulses is constrained by factors including soil acidity, aridity and herbicide residues. This project, in collaboration with similar projects in the GRDC western and southern region is evaluating a range of elite rhizobial strains of Mediterranean and Australian origin for use on lentil, faba bean, field pea, vetch and chickpea. Identification of more resilient rhizobial strains will be an important tool in increasing the use and widening the adaptation of pulses in the GRDC northern region.
