816. Bezdicek, D.. no date. (Influence of residual soil N on N2 fixation; N2 fixation of chickpeas). unpublished.
High levels of residual soil N decreased N2 fixation. There was a negative correlation between the fraction of plant N derived from N2 fixation and total mineralizable N and KCl extractable N. N2 fixation was reduced by about 2.8 kg/ha for each kg/ha of available soil N. Seed yield response from inoculation ranged from 5-70% and was negatively correlated with available soil N. Residual soil moisture in July was greatestfor large seeded legumes > forage legumes > winter wheat. T: N fixation in chickpeas.

General growth characteristics, seed yields, and water use of four edible legumes grown at the Pendleton Station are reported. Brewer and Chilean 78 lentils are not as adapted to this climate as are Latah peas. Chickpeas produced yields, seed size, and seed color which would warrant further testing of this species. Production of Diana fababean was not encouraging because of its growth habit and productivity. T: Flowering, maturity and seed yield of legumes, Pendleton, OR. Average weekly water use for Latah peas, Brewer lentil, chickpea, and Diana fababean, Pendleton, OR.
