Abstract A rhizobial isolate was recovered from the root nodule of the faba bean ( Vicia faba L.) grown in sludge-contaminated fields in Upper Egypt. The isolate was identified as Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae on the bases of phenotypic characteristics and sequences of the gene encoding 16S rRNA. The isolate was resistant to heavy metal stress in decreasing order Ba 2+ (80 ppm), Zn 2+ (70 ppm), Co 2+ (50), Al 3+ (40 ppm), Ni 2+ (30 ppm), and Cd 2+ (10 ppm). The rhizobial isolate was used… CONTINUE READING
