Brockwell, John; Mitchell, Peter A.; Searle, Suzette; Leach, Elainne M.A.; Crews, T E


Acacia mearnsii De Wild., inoculated (soil enrichment inoculation) with three effective strains of Bradyrhizobium or uninoculated, was grown as tubed stock in a nursery. After 33 weeks, the seedlings were outplanted into a plantation as monocultures (monocrops) or interplanted with Eucalyptus nitens (Deane & Maiden) Maiden (polycrops). Observations on root nodulation, tree growth and symbiotic nitrogen fixation (N 2 fixation) were made during the nursery phase and for 5 y (1998-2003) after...[Show more]
