Experiments on two farmers' properties demonstrated that legume pastures increase the fertility of northern wheatbelt soils.
Crops on legume pastures had higher yields than crops on volunteer pasture.
The experiments also indicated the most productive legume species for each situation and demonstrated that nitrogen added by legumes has a residual effect in the soil.
