Nitrogen fixation in tropical cropping systems by Ken Giller end Kate Wilson 1991 313pp ISBN 085198 6714 Hbk CABI, Wallingford Oxon OX10 ODE, UK
Soil fertility is an overriding constraint to food production in the tropics, yet in many less developed countries fertilizers are unavailable or beyond the reach of subsistence farmers. The biological fixation of atmospheric nitrogen is the only way that plants can manufacture their own nitrogenous fertilizer and is the main input of nitrogen in many tropical cropping systems. Nitrogen fixation in tropical cropping systems provides a comprehensive review of the main nitrogen-fixing grain crops, fodder plants and trees in the tropics and shows how the inputs of nitrogen can be most efficiently utilized for sustainable agricultural production.
