Most probable number counts of groundnut rhizobia in some soils of Bangladesh

Most probable number counts of groundnut rhizobia in some soils of Bangladesh

International Arachis Newsletter ( 16): 43-45

The distribution of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea) rhizobia in some Bangladesh soils and the effect of soil depth and season was assessed. Soil samples were collected from seven locations: Gangetic alluvium; Brahmaputra alluvium; Teesta silt; Barind tract; Madhupur tract; Saline tract; and Hill tract, in Jan/Feb, May/June and Sep/Oct. The MPN count was higher in topsoils (0-15 cm) and relatively low in subsurface soils (15-30 cm).
