Rhizobium is a soil bacterium that has great environmental and agricultural importance because of their symbiotic association with leguminous plants. They are responsible for most of the atmospheric nitrogen fixed on the earth. Rhizobium is a free-living bacterium, which grow well on a nitrogen free medium. These bacteria utilize atmospheric nitrogen gas for their cell protein synthesis. This cell protein is then mineralised in soil after the death of the cells thereby contributing towards the nitrogen availability to the crop plants. Jensen Seedling Agar, a nitrogen free medium, is used for germinating seeds of leguminous plants while studying the nodulating ability of Rhizobium species.
