Additional Information



The ICRISAT Rhizobium culture collection represents rhizobia of the three mandate legumes: chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.), groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.), and pigeonpea [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.]. This catalog lists a total of 819 strains of which 259 are of chickpea, 150 of groundnut, and 410 of pigeonpea, from 17 countries. Sixty eight percent of these strains were isolated at ICRISAT Center from nodules obtained or collected from six countries. The remaining 32 % of the strains were contributions from scientists in different countries and other Rhizobium culture collections of the world. The collection represents rhizobia from diverse climatic regions, different soil types, different growth rates in laboratory conditions, and different effectiveness rating in glasshouse studies. Information in this catalog has been assembled to encourage use of these strains in different relevant studies by the scientific community.
