Nitrogen fixation Hundred years after Proceedings of the 7th International Congress on Nitrogen Fixation, Koln Cologne, FRG, March 13-20, 1988: 747-752
This subject is discussed under the headings: genotypic variability in N fixation and soil N uptake; implications of methods used; associated plant traits; selection criteria; and performance of selected genotypes. Improving the ability of rice to take up soil N may not only stimulate N fixation by associative and free-living microorganisms but also reduce N losses.
