  • SummaryThe nitrogen fixation rate in a 4-year-old stand of the woody legumeLeucaena leucocephala (Lam.) de Wit. was estimated in the field at a rather dry site in Tanzania by use of an acetylene reduction technique. The diurnal mean value during April–May was 35 nmol C2H4 mg−1 (dry weight) nodules h−1, with a variation between 22±8 and 48±12 nmol C2H4 mg−1 (dry weight) nodules h−1 in early morning and at midday, respectively. The nodule biomass was determined by auger sampling to be 51±16 kg… CONTINUE READING
