Paired rhizobial strains supplied in several proportions were used to study inter-strain competition in association with Macroptilium atropurpureum (DC) URB (siratro) and Stylosanthes guianensis (Aubl.) Swartz (Stylo, line I R I 1022). Plants raised from surface sterilized seed, were grown on agar in large cotton-wool plugged tubes, and populations and inter-strain ratios determined in the inoculum and on the root at several times after inoculation. The nodules were mapped in order of… CONTINUE READING
