Six Vicia faba populations were grown in all possible combinations with six Rhizobium leguminosarum strains in order to estimate the relative importance of the three genetic components of symbiotic variability. Additive genetic effects of host genotype and rhizobium genotype accounted for only 8.9% and 11.8% of the total phenotypic variation. Non-additive… CONTINUE READING
