The newly developed cultivars of soybean in Africa, known as Tropical Glycine cross (TGx), are nodulated by bradyrhizobia indigenous to African soils, here designated Bradyrhizobium spp. (TGx). Isolates of Bradyrhizobium spp. (TGx) obtained from nodules of TGx soybeans that were inoculated with soils from 65 locations in six African countries were characterized and grouped into 11 phylogenetic clusters on the basis of RFLP of the 16S rRNA gene. Five restriction enzymes (RsaI, HinfI, MspI, CfoI… CONTINUE READING
