Nitrogen-Fixing Bacteria: Boosting Plant Health, Crop Yields

nitrogen-fixing bacteria roots of plant

Nitrogen-fixing bacteria are genuinely marvels of the natural world. They convert nitrogen gas from the atmosphere into biologically available nitrogen. Some have also learned to cooperate with plants and take up residence inside roots. These two processes, called nitrogen fixation and root nodulation, are essential for leguminous plants like soybean and clover. Other nitrogen-fixing bacteria […]
