Abstract

A comparative study of the response of French bean to local Rhizobium isolate AAURh and an isolate FB-9-2 obtained from IARI New Delhi was conducted using two French bean varieties. In both the varieties the plant height and the number of leaves per plant were reduced when inoculated with either of the strain. However nodules were formed by both the strain but the nodule number and the weight of the nodules per plant were comparatively more in the plants inoculated with the local isolate.
