The Chemotactic Response of Bradyrhizobium japonicum to Various Organic Compounds
The investigation of the chemotactic response of Bradyrhizobium japonicum to amino acids, carbohydrates, multiatomic alcohols, organic acids, and soybean extracts showed that the extracts of some soybean varieties contain repellents, indicating that the soybeans of host plants contain effectors that may play a role at the early stages of their interaction with nodule bacteria.

Physiological and morphological aspects of interactions between Rhizobium meliloti and alfalfa (Medicago sativa) in association with Azospirillum brasilense
In a 50-L pot experiment with Medicago sativa grown under nonsterile conditions, a combined treatment of Azospirillum and Rhizobium was measured against soil inoculated with Rhizobium or Azospirill...
Occurrence of Dinitrogen-fixing Bacteria and Acetylene Reduction Activity in a Rhizosphere of Five Selected Plants from Tropics
The aim of the papers is to characterize the occurence and distribution of dinitrogen-fixing bacteria including species of Azospirillum, Azotobacter and Clostridum in rhizosphere of the followingExpand
Isolation of Azospirillum from the Interior of Various Parts of Some Graminaceous Plants
Summary Isolation of Azospirillum from the roots, stems, leaf-sheaths and leaves of several field- and in vitro grown graminaceous plants is reported here.
Characterization of Azospirillum associated with maize (Zea mays) in France, using biochemical tests and plasmid profiles
Thirty Azospirillum strains were isolated from the rhizosphere of 13 maize cultivars grown in 14 French soils, using a new specific method, which has been given the name ROSEA, and the hypothesis of the presence of such plasmids as an additional criterion for differentiating species is reinforced.

Contribution of Azospirillum brasilense Cd to growth of tomato seedlings is not through nitrogen fixation
A wild type and a site-directed mutant strain (Nif−) of Azospirillum brasilense Cd, totally deficient in N2-fixation capability, were used to evaluate if improvement in tomato seedling growth is du...
Effect of soil organic matter on chickpea inoculated with Azospirillum brasilense and Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. ciceri
Azosprillum inoculated with Rhizobium improved the nodulation of chickpea-Cicer arietinum. This interaction was further enhanced by organic matter present in the growth medium.
