Rhizobium-Azospirillum interactions during establishment of Rhizobium-clover symbiosis were studied. When mixed cultures of Azospirillum and Rhizobium trifolii strains were simultaneously inoculated onto clover plants, no nodulation by R. trifolii was observed. R. trifolii ANU1030, which nodulated clover plants without attacking root hairs, i.e., does not cause root hair curling (Hac), did not show inhibition of nodulation when inoculated together with Azospirillum strains. Isolation of… CONTINUE READING
