229 ABSTRACT: Rhizobium – legume symbiotic association contributes considerable amount of N in tropical soils. However, low rainfall and high temperature in Sudano-Sahelian region of Northeastern Nigeria may affect the Rhizobial population in the soil. Therefore, the influence of Rhizobia inoculation on N2 fixation by cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.), groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) and bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranean L.Verdc.) was evaluated under field condition in Maiduguri. The… CONTINUE READING
