Acetylene reduction activities (ARAs) of soils and rice plants during rice-growing season were monitored in temperate region in northeast China. This activity was significantly higher in rhizosphere soil than that in inter-row soil after rice seedlings were transplanted. The ARA was high for most of growing season, suggesting that the native N2-fixing bacteria responded to rice roots very quickly. Sixteen strains of free-living N2-fixing bacteria were isolated from three different soils. The… CONTINUE READING
