Nitrogen-fixing (acetylene redution) activity and population of aerobic heterotrophic nitrogen-fixing bacteria associated with wetland rice.


Nitrogen-fixing activity associated with different wetland rice varieties was measured at various growth stages by an in situ acetylene reduction method after the activities of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) in the flood water and on the lower portion of the rice stem were eliminated. Nitrogen-fixing activities associated with rice varieties differed with… (More)
