Effect of aldrin and lindane seed treatment on symbiosis of chickpea rhizobium with Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum)
Aldrin and lindane seed treatments both led to a decrease in the number of survivors on the seeds of Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum) inoculated with chickpea rhizobium. There was a reduction in nodule number, yield and N content at all concentrations of insecticides in comparison with the control.
