Beginning—Easy to perform; requires no experience in microbiology.

For 30 students. Members of the bacterial genus Rhizobium exist in a symbiotic relationship with leguminous plants (peas, clover, and soybeans). The Rhizobium species grow in nodules on the roots of the plants and fix atmospheric nitrogen. This supplies the plant with nitrates and the bacteria with energy and a favorable environment. When legumes are plowed under, significant amounts of nitrates are added to the soil.

Students plant clover seeds that have been inoculated with the Rhizobium bacteria. After 5 to 6 weeks, the nodules on the roots can be observed. The exercise requires 5 to 6 weeks from set up to completion. Teacher must supply potting soil and pots. With instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seeing is believing This was a new experiment for my APES students. Even though it took a long time for development, we were able to distinguish the presence of nodules on the Rhizobium inoculated seeds. The students had to really discern whether it was a normal structure or a nodule. The lab does require some microscope experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from seeds grew poorly Despite refrigerating immediately upon receipt, our rhizobium inoculated clover seeds did not grow well. Root nodules did not grow either. We followed the directions given, but we must have gotten a poor batch. The packaging and shipping was fine. It was a little hard to get the seeds safely out of the envelope they came in, so I ended up counting out seeds in advance for my students.
