Soil acidity constraints grain legume production in tropical soils, both limiting Rhizobium survival and reducing nodulation. Strains of rhizobia with greater tolerance to hydrogen-ion concentration have been identified, but the basis for strain differences in pH tolerance has yet to be determined. In this study, strains of Rhizobium leguminosarum by phaseoli which differed in their tolerance to acidity were exposed to acid pH, then cell levels of potassium and calcium determined, and specific… CONTINUE READING
