Grain yield of fiord faba bean in relation to strain of rhizobium

, : Grain yield of fiord faba bean in relation to strain of rhizobium. Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture 31(2): 251-254

Drill-sown field experiments were established in 1988 at each of 6 sites in the cereal districts of South Australia to assess the responses of Fiord faba bean to inoculation with 2 different strains of Rhizobium. Each trial was sown and managed in co-operation with a farmer using standard farm equipment. The 4 inoculation treatments, imposed were: no inoculation; Group E, strain SU 391; strains SU 303; SU 391 + SU 303. Samples were taken during early vegetative growth for determination of nodulation, nodule activity and plant dry weight. Inoculation significantly (P < 0.05) improved nodulation, with SU 303 being better than SU 391; but early plant growth did not respond to inoculation. Grain yield at the end of the season was improved an average of 20% by inoculation; 15% for SU 391 and 28% for SU 303. It is concluded that SU 303 is a better inoculant for Fiord faba bean than the present Group E inoculant, strain SU 391.
