 en Effect of Inoculation rates and Phosphorus Fertilization on Nitrogen Fixation in Soyabean
Moharram, T.M.M; Safwat, M.S.A & Farghaly, M.M


Field experiments were conducted to study the effect of inoculation rates (104 and 108 rhizobial cells 100 g-1 seeds) and phosphorus fertilizations (0 and 20 kg P ha-1) on N-fixation, yield and N and P uptake for two cultivars of soybean (Clark and Crowford). Inoculation stimulated nodule formation and N-fixation. Application of phosphorus at the inoculation rate of 108 r.c.100g-1 seeds significantly increased the amount of nodules and N-fixed. Cultivar Clark performed better than Crowford.
