Lipids of Soybean Inoculated with Microsymbionts

Abstract

In many soils, especially tropical lateritic soils, crop productivity is limited by low N and P availability. The growth of legumes can be improved substantially by the presence of both symbiotic N2-fixing bacteria and endomycorrhizal fungi. In most experiments with these microsymbionts, nodulated or mycorrhizal hosts are compared to N- or P-deficient controls. Many of the physiological differences between these plants are derived from nutritional differences. In this study non-symbiotic controls were given N and/or P fertilizer at rates designed to produce equal plant growth in all treatments.
