|Abstract: ||Soybean nodulates with specific rhizobia and usually requires inoculation with Bradyrhizobium
japonicum strains. Several varieties (e.g., Malayan and Orba) introduced to Africa (Pulver et al.,
1982;) were however adequately nodulated in soils that had no previous inoculation with B.
japonicum while cultivars from North America were poorly nodulated. The freely nodulating soybean
genotypes, termed promiscuous, however, had poor agronomic characteristics. The International
Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) selected soybean genotypes that combined the free
nodulating traits of the promiscuous genotypes and the improved agronomic characteristics of the
North American genotypes. The resultant TGx genotypes, widely cultivated in western and eastern
Africa have poor yields due to ineffective nodulation (Okereke and Eaglesham, 1992). This
observation led to the suggestion that the TGx soybean genotypes would benefit from B. japonicum
inoculation. It is therefore important that the genetic relatedness of the indigenous rhizobia nodulating these soybean genotypes to recommended inoculum strains (e.g., B. japonicum USDA 110) needs to be elucidated.
