Lima bean plants (Phaseolus lunatus L.) inoculated with Rhizobium sp. strain 127E14, which lacks constitutive nitrate reductase activity, were significantly taller after 4 weeks of age than plants inoculated with strain 127E15, which contains constitutive nitrate reductase activity. Plants inoculated with either strain responded to application of 5 micrograms gibberellic acid per plant with rapid internode elongation; plants inoculated with strain 127E15 became less responsive to gibberellic… CONTINUE READING
