Title: Variation in the sensitivity of nodulation and nitrogen fixation to nitrate in annual Medicago species
Author: Heidari Sharif Abad, Hossein
Issue Date: 1994
School/Discipline: Dept. of Plant Science
Abstract: Annual species of Medicago, or medics, are important pasture legumes in the neutral to alkaline soils of southern Australia but their nodulation and nitrogen fixation processes are retarded by soil nitrate. This study ascertains whether an observed tolerance to nitrate among medic species can be substantiated, and attempts to understand the underlying factors responsible.
