NITROGEN FIXATION IN TROPICAL CROPPING SYSTEMS 2nd Edition 1 Z:\Customer\CABI\A - Giller - Nitrogen Fixation\A - Giller + Watson - Nitrogen Fixation SET # Nitrogen fixation by leguminous plants is especially important when farmers are trying to minimise fertilizer use for cost or environmental reasons. This second edition of the highly successful book, first published in , contains thoroughly updated and revised material on the theory and practice of nitrogen fixation in tropical cropping systems. The actual and possible contributions of biological fixation of atmospheric N in tropical agriculture, which can play a crucial role in increasing the sustainability of yields with minimal external inputs, are described. The process of biological N fixation and the organisms which are capable of fixing N in cropping systems of the tropics are described.

Symbiotic Nitrogen Fixation. Symbiotic nitrogen fixation (SNF) is one of the major sources of N for crop production, and it has been estimated that N fixed by bacteria of the genus Rhizobium ranges from to kg ha−1 in the case of many leguminous plants.
