To further selection of the most promising strains to inoculate and improve the implantation and persistence of Lotus tenuis in the most important area devoted to meat‐cow production in Argentina.

The high levels of conservation of the nodC and nifH genes suggest that there was a common origin of the symbiosis genes in narrow-host-range Lotus symbionts, supporting the hypothesis that both intrageneric horizontal gene transfer and intergeneric horizontal geneTransfer are important mechanisms for the spread of symbiotic capacity in the Salado River Basin.

The agroecological potential of the genus Lotus can not be fully harnessed without acknowledging the great diversity of rhizobia-Lotus interactions, along with a better understanding of the specific plant and bacterial requirements for optimal symbiotic nitrogen fixation under increasingly constrained environmental conditions.
Characterization of Rhizobium loti strains from the Salado River Basin
The results indicated that native rhizobia isolates from the Chascomús area are predominantly fast and intermediate-growers.
Growth promotion and protection from drought in Eucalyptus grandis seedlings inoculated with beneficial bacteria embedded in a superabsorbent polymer
It is concluded that the selected bacteria can benefit E. grandis early growth and can be easily inoculated at transplant by using an acrylic-hydrocellulosic SAP.
Growth, nutrient uptake and symbiosis with rhizobia and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in Lotus tenuis plants fertilized with different phosphate sources and inoculated with the phosphate-solubilizing…
The results suggesting that inoculation of L. tenuis with the PSB such as P. eucalypti M91 strain might allow more efficient use of N and P and a more sustainable option for grasslands producers from the Salado River Basin, in order to reduce costs and avoid increased levels of P insoluble in soils.
Lotus japonicus plants of the Gifu B-129 ecotype subjected to alkaline stress improve their Fe(2+) bio-availability through inoculation with Pantoea eucalypti M91.

Results obtained demonstrate that soils of the FP are a source of efficient and diverse rhizobia that could be used as a sustainable agronomic tool to formulate inoculants that improve forage yield of L. tenuis in this region.

Two rhizobial strains isolated from root nodules of Lotus tenuis grown in saline-alkaline lowlands soil from Argentina can be considered to represent a novel species of the genus Mesorhizobium, for which the name Mesoruanii sp.
