Screening and Selection of Maize to Enhance Associative Bacterial Nitrogen Fixation

Abstract

The ability of maize (corn, Zea mays L.) to support bacterial nitrogen fixation in or on maize roots has been increased, through screening and selection. Isotopic N fixed from ${}^{15}\text{N}_{2}$ was found on the roots. The nitrogen-fixing association was found in germplasm from tropical maize, but this activity can be transferred to maize currently used in midwestern United States agriculture.
