Abstract: Previous chapters have described how to access the symbiotic effectiveness of rhizobia with legume genotypes in a range of experimental systems, from growth pouches and small tubes containing single plants in a growth room, to large replicated field trials. What is important is to measure the extent of effective nodulation and the yield of biomass and/or grain by the legume. Rhizobial treatments can be evaluated without quantifying the amount of nitrogen being fixed. Measuring the amount of N fixed by single plants will not add much greater insight to that provided by nodulation and yield data.
