Carolina™ Nitrogen-Fixation Study Kit (with perishables)

Item # 154743P

Beginning—Easy to perform; requires no experience in microbiology.
For 30 students. Members of the genus Rhizobium exist in a symbiotic relationship with leguminous plants (peas, clover, and soybeans). The Rhizobium growing in nodules on the roots of leguminous plants fix atmospheric nitrogen (N2). This supplies plants with nitrates and bacteria with energy and a favorable environment. Farmers plow under legumes, adding N2 to the soil. Nodules can be observed 6 weeks after planting.
