Nitrogen fixation by Medicago sativa and Trifolium repens in agar culture was not stimulated by additions of Mo in quantities exceeding 0.03-0.05 gamma per plant. As much as 37, 000 parts of W could be fixed per part of Mo present.Lucerne grown in sand showed a relatively small but significant response to Mo when the medium provided only one part of assimilable Mo per 80, 000 parts of N fixed.
