In this work, we evaluated how the use of alternative N sources affects drought-stress tolerance in common beans. To this end, plants were cultivated employing either N(2) fixation or two levels of inorganic nitrogen: 1 mM NH(4)NO(3) (limiting) or 10 mM NH(4)NO(3) (sufficient). Drought was imposed by withholding watering at 30 days after planting (DAP) - coinciding with flowering. At 20 DAP, growth and N content were significantly higher in NH(4)NO(3)-sufficient plants than in N(2)-fixing and… CONTINUE READING
