More nitrogen from pasture legumes
February 28 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Anecdotal evidence suggests legumes in high rainfall beef pastures are not nodulating or fixing nitrogen adequately. It is imperative for economic and environmental sustainability that clover-based pastures function effectively.
This event launches a project to run through 2019 that will benchmark soil constraints in high rainfall beef pastures, including issues affecting legume nodulation.
The event will feature Neil Ballard (Global Pasture Consultants), Bradley Nutt (Murdoch University), Sofie De Meyer (MALDI-ID) and Justin Mercy (CSBP) who will discuss the function and inherent problems of root nodule bacteria, herbicide residue, soil fertility and pH issues, limitations of inoculant delivery systems, pasture establishment technologies and suitable legume varieties.
The event will be held at the Nannup Community Centre Function Room.
