Pulse crops can be a valuable source of nitrogen within cropping systems. The amount of N fixed by legumes can vary substantially and is affected by the species of crop, soil and seasonal conditions and crop management factors.
In this webinar, QDAF senior agronomist Howard Cox and researcher Professor David Herridge, University of New England, will outline:
- The effect of important agronomic practices on the amount of N fixed.
- How to estimate the N contribution from pulse crops.
- The pulse N contribution in years with low yield but high biomass.
