 Observations of newer diazotrophs like Acetobacter diazotrophicus and Herbaspirillum spp. in Indian sugarcane varieties is reported here for the first time. A. diazotrophicus was isolated from sugarcane plants where N fertilisation was nil, and numbers in the Indian cultivars were estimated to be up to 106–107 colony forming units g1 fresh weight. N fertilisation was the limiting factor for the isolation of A. diazotrophicus, as evidenced by selective growth patterns in different… CONTINUE READING
