Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) represents an important crop in tropics, but previous screenings of Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. phaseoli did not show strains that could fix N2 in symbiosis with bean at temperatures higher than 35°C (Hungria and Franco, 1993). However, there are other rhizobia and bradyrhizobia species that nodulate some tropical leguminous trees and can fix N2 at high temperatures. In a trial of rhizobial strains isolated from leguminous trees, we found that 14 out of 21… CONTINUE READING
