Cite article:- Sibbal Anshu, Gupta R.P., Pandher M.S. (2024). A STUDY ON DEVELOPMENT OF CULTIVAR AND AREA SPECIFIC STRAINS OF RHIZOBIUM LEGUMINOSARUM FOR PEA (PISUM SATlVUM L.)*. Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 35(1): 1-6. doi: .
The present study was undertaken to obtain cultlvar and area specific rhizobia for pea. Soil samples were collected and analysed for soil characteristics. Six isolates LC 1 to LC 6 of Rhizobium Isolated from 3 different varieties grown in soils of Ludhlana belt were screened and tested for legume-Rhizobium symbiosis along with a reference culture with three varieties of pea at Ludhiana. In general, reference culture (P-4) was found better for most of the symbiotic parameters with variety Arkel and MA-6. However, for Pb-88, Isolate LC-2 interacted best for nodule weight, nitrogenase activity and LC-4 for remaining parameters. LC-5 x Arkel, LC-4 x MA-6 and LC-2 x Pb-88 were the best combinations for grain yield
