The effect of varying concentrations of DDT was studied on growth, nodulation, yield, leghaemoglobin content of nodules and nitrogen uptake of Phaseolus aureus inoculated with Rhizobium sp. Normal doses and even ten times more than those were not deleterious to any of the above characters but 40 ppm and higher levels were significantly harmful. Addition of 1 per cent organic matter appreciably reduced the toxic action of the insecticide.
