The proposed project seeks to increase the understanding of N2 fixation rates of diazotrophs
and their respective contribution to the total BNF in these systems.

In Marine Pelagic Cyanobacteria: Trichodesmium and Other Diazotrophs
The excessive use of agrochemicals has decreased the natural soil microflora, particularly the diazotrophs

Inoculation of rice plants with endophytic diazotrophs
Herbaspirillum seropedicae and Burkholderia spp.
James and Clivares reported the extensive colonisation of sugar cane by endophytic diazotrophs
relationships directly and indirectly enrich the associated plants and soil with nitrogen such that the success of newly constructed or reclaimed wetlands may be fostered by inclusion of plant species known to harbor associative diazotrophs
Kennedy IR, Choudhury ATMA, Kecskes ML (2004) Non-symbiotic bacterial diazotrophs
in crop-farming systems: can their potential for plant growth promotion be better exploited?
Association of Azospirillum and other diazotrophs
with tropical graminae.
Plant growth-promoting effects of diazotrophs
in the rhizosphere.
This enzymatic activity of the diazotrophs
was most pronounced with the single inoculation of Azospirillum, followed by combined inoculation.
The recent study examined that Actinobacteria being the most predominant from roots and rhizosfer soils of Lasiurus sindicus, based on analysis of nifH sequences showed close similarity to cultivated diazotrophs
like Azospirillum brasilense and Rhizobium sp.
