Abstract

The purpose of this study has been to advance knowledge of the nitrogen fixation potential of selected native legumes. With this objective in mind the investigation has been broken down into three segments. 1. Specimens of native legumes were sought on a state wide basis, collected, identified and preserved in a permanent herbarium. 2. Native legumes which showed good nodulation were evaluated for nitrogen fixing potential. 3. The microsymbiont was isolated from the nodules of selected native legumes and cultured.
