5474. Pumphrey, F.V., T.R. Toll and B.L. Klepper. 1985. Edible legume seed yield and water use.. OR Agr. Expt. Sta. Special Report 738, p.44-49.
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.

7662. Wright, A.T. and E. Coxworth. 1987. Benefits from pulses in the cropping systems of northern Canada. p. 108. IN: J.F. Power (ed.). The role of legumes in conservation tillage systems..
Investigated yield and N response in barley and wheat, 1 and 2 years after pulse crops of fababean, pea, and lentil. Overall yields were higher on fababean and field pea residues than lentils. Soil tests could not attribute yield differences among crop residues to differences in soil N levels at time of seeding. Nitrogen fertilizer equivalents for barley were 105, 85, and 50 lb N/ac for fababean, peas, and lentils. Legume residues influenced barley grain quality. In the second year following pulses, the dry matter yield, grain yield, and N uptake of wheat was 15% higher than in the continuous cereal sequence. Analysis of 3 completed rotation cycles showed that cropping sequences that included pulses were considerably more productive than the continuous cereal sequence in terms of net energy production and economic gross margin to cash costs. Field peas were the most effective first-year crop in terms of net energy production.

This proceedings covers a wide range of topics relating to food legumes: international programs, genetic resources, cropping systems, management and tillage, harvest and storage, processing and utilization, economics, biotic limitations, IPM, nitrogen fixation, physiology, breeding and biotechnology, and regional reports.

8907. Bremer, E., R.J. Rennie, and D.A. Rennie. 1988. Dinitrogen fixation of lentil, field pea and fababean under dryland conditions.. Can. J. Soil Sci. 68:553-562.
N15 was used to study the N-fixation of several grain legumes in Saskatchewan, with all major soil zones represented. Indigenous rhizobia were incapable of supporting adequate levels of N2 fixation at most sites. Inoculation increased total dry matter, total N, and N2 fixation of all legume cultivars tested. Annual rates of N2 fixation were as high as 75, 105, and 160 kg N/ha for lentil, pea, and fababean, respectively on gray and gray-black soils in one year, but declined by an average of 5.3, 7.6, and 10.5 kg N/ha, repsectively, for every cm reduction in moisture use. Fababean fixed the most N under wetter conditions, while pea and lentil fixed the most under drought stress conditions. The amount of N fixed was not significantly correlated with soil nitrate levels in either year, perhaps due to the overriding effects of moisture. Estimates of the % plant N derived from atmospheric fixation ranged from 30-80%, with fababean generally the highest. The % from atmosphere was negatively correlated to soil nitrate for pea and lentil.
