Inoculation trials conducted at Merredin Research Station and Merredin Research Station lease block. 1. To test the field effectiveness of promising strains of Rhizobium meliloti and to compare them with standard strains. 2. To examine the performance in subsequent years of R. meliloti as colonizers of acid soils. The new strains included in this experiment represent promising isolates from acid soils in Sardinia. Their ability to persist will be determined by second and third year nodulation assessments. 3. To compare the performance of Medicago murex with previously used medic hosts under acid conditions. 4. To assess the effect of lime application on Rhizobial persistence in acid soils.
