Abstract/Contents:Examines the microorganism rhizobia, and its association with legume plants such as peas, lentils and alfalfa. "Rhizobia invade the legume roots, and the infected roots subsequently develop growths called nodules that house the bacteria, whereupon the bacteria start fixing nitrogen for the plant and get food and energy in return." "The nitrogen they [legumes] build up through their symbiotic relationship with the rhizobia can be returned to the soil, where it can be used by other crops in succeeding years." Suggests using this relationship "to see whether there might be a way of making it more productive for the plant. And that would mean higher productivity and increased available nitrogen without some of the problems associated with synthetic fertilizer use."
