Short Communication


The pot culture and field experiment with eleven treatments in gram were conducted in order to find out an efficient strain of rhizobia for seed inoculation in future. Results of both the experiments were statistically significant. All isolates of Rhizobium although, were superior over control, did not perform equally in the field. Seed inoculation with different strains of Rhizobium in gram increased the dry weight as well as grain yield significantly. re]19730123
