Abstract

Three strains of Rhizobium able to fix nitrogen in symbiosis with lentils in saline soil were screened. Nodulation pattern, N2-fixation and grain yield were all influenced by Rhizobium strain and lentil genotype. Genotypes DL-443 and Pant L-406 were found to be more salt tolerant than others, and gave the highest grain yield.
