Acetylene reduction in gnotobiotic cultures with rhizosphere bacteria and wheat


Spring-wheat plant seedlings were inoculated with various isolates of nitrogen-fixing rhizosphere bacteria, includingAzospirillum brasilense, in gnotobiotic sand cultures. Bacteria which had lost their acetylene reduction activity (ARA) during purification did not regain it in the presence of the plant. Bacteria with stable ARA were stimulated to low ARA… (More)
