Researchers from Washington State University and around the world have discovered how to trigger nodulation in legumes — like alfalfa — without the bacteria normally necessary to do so. Nodulation is a key element of the nitrogen-fixing process. This means that someday, non-legume crops may be able to fix their own nitrogen and reduce the need for inorganic fertilizers. The research was published in the June 29 issue of Nature. For more details, follow this link.
