Seed inoculation with Rhizobium culture, singly and in combination with fertilizer N at the rate of 25 kg N/ha (urea), significantly increased the nodulation and green fodder yield in clover and lucerne and grain yield in chickpea over the controls, i.e., uninoculated control and application of 25 kg N/ha alone without inoculation. Inoculation of seed with Rhizobium and A. brasilense generally increased the nodualtion and yield of all the legumes in field experiments.
