In N. Carolina range soils, native rhizobia occur associated with Trifolium albopurpureum, T. bifidum, T. ciliolatum, T. depauperatum, T. dichotomum, T. flavulum, T. melanthum, T. microcephalum, T. microdon, T. oliganthum and T. tridentatum. These rhizobia nodulate subterranean clover but are ineffective in N fixation with this host. Native rhizobia compete with those in commercial inoculants to form nodules.
