Abstract

The compatibility between rhizobia and host plants for nodulation was determined based on the genetic and physiological properties of both symbionts. It has been observed that soybean varieties carrying the Rj-gene were not nodulated effectively by certain strains or groups of rhizobia. Soybeans carrying the Rj2-gene, Rj2-varieties, were found to nodule ineffectively by the rhizobial strains belonging to the 3-24-44 and 122 serogroups (Caldwell 1966). In the same way, Rj3- and Rj4-varieties were found to nodule ineffectively by strains USDA 33 (Vest 1970) and USDA 61 (Vest and Caldwell 1972), respectively.
