Symbiotic characteristics of pea mutants

Tsitologiya i Genetika 23(5): 49-53
Symbiotic characteristics of pea mutants
In a pot study of Torsdag, the fodder pea Parvus and 9 mutants induced in these varieties by treating the seeds with chemical mutagens and gamma rays, marked differences were found in nitrogen-fixing activity measured by the acetylene method and in the development of bacterial tissue (measured by electron microscope morphometric analysis). In most cases the bacterial tissue of the nodules was better developed in forms with high nitrogen-fixing activity.
