Abstract/Contents:Suggests that "the biological fixation of atmospheric nitrogen by nonleguminous plants can be of great economic importance as a potential source of nitrogen for agriculture." Describes research "conducted at the All-Union Scientific-Research Institute of Agricultural Microbiology on the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen by nonleguminous plants in associative symbiosis with microorganisms." States that "the main subjects of the investigations were members of the Poaceae family." Results include that "the assimilation of atmospheric nitrogen takes place when the microorganisms are in close contact with the roots of the plants and therefore great attention was paid in the work to a determiniation of the nitrogenase activity of root diazotrophs for subsequent selection of the most interesting bacterial species." Concludes that "the potentiality for the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen in associate symbioses with microorganisms is inherent to many nonleguminous plants of different families."
