Most Probable Number (MPN) technique for estimation of rhizobia nodulating pulse crops



Most Probable Number (MPN) technique for estimation of rhizobia nodulating pulse crops



Current Research University of Agricultural Sciences Bangalore 23(9): 110-112



The MPN technique using soyabeans, siratro (Macroptilium atropurpureum), cowpeas, pigeonpeas and Vigna radiata was compared with the plate count method to assess the number of viable rhizobia. In general, the MPN technique consistently gave lower estimations of rhizobia than plate counts, particularly with pigeonpeas and Vigna radiata.
