PCR-mediated restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis of the 16S-23S rRNA internally transcribed spacer (ITS) region and the 16S rRNA gene indicated that the rhizobial populations isolated from common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) nodules in the unlimed soil from a series of five lime rates applied 6 years previously to plots of an acidic oxisol had less diversity than those from plots with higher rates of liming. Isolates affiliated with Rhizobium tropici IIB and Rhizobium… CONTINUE READING
