Legumes in the reclamation of marginal soils, from cultivar and inoculant selection to transgenic approaches

Abstract

Mineral nitrogen deficiency is a frequent characteristic of arid and semi-arid soils. Biological nitrogen fixation by legumes is a sustainable and environmental-friendly alternative to chemical fertilization. Therefore, legumes have a high potential for the reclamation of marginal soils. Such issue is becoming more urgent due to the ever-rising requirement… (More)
