Nitrogen balance studies were conducted to quantify the nitrogen fixed by a groundnuts/Rhizobium symbiotic system under field conditions in a desert sandy soil. Large scale inoculation with three NifTAL strains of cowpea rhizobia, 1000, 169, 1371 was achieved using two inoculation techniques: peat-based inoculant or injection of inoculant with irrigation water, through an injection tank attached to the central pivot system.
