Nitrogen-fixing bacteria for a sustainable agriculture

Appropriate bioinoculants can replace nitrogen fertilizers, making agriculture more sustainable without compromising yields.

For legume crops, such as soybean, bean, chickpea and lentils, bioinoculants are special bacteria known as rhizobia. These soil bacteria that fix the atmospheric nitrogen when in symbiosis with legumes, sustain the plant growth even in absence of nitrogen fertilizers.
