Grains Research & Development Corporation (GRDC): Request for Tender – Increasing the effectiveness of nitrogen fixation in pulse crops through improved grower and advisor awareness and knowledge of inoculation and crop management practices in the Southern region (PROC-9175594).

As well as generating useful income, pulses provide significant benefits to following crops, including nitrogen (N) fixation boosting N supplies to following crops. Pulses are estimated to fix about 120 kg N/h, or more than 220,000 tonnes N across Australia, worth about $220 M each year. However, not all pulses are well nodulated and fix N to their potential, especially on acidic soils. It was recently estimated that N fixation could be increased by 25%.

Several past and present GRDC funded projects have produced outputs that require further extension and communication.
