7th International Congress on Nitrogen Fixation

November 18, 2011

The 7th International Congress on Nitrogen Fixation will be held on 27 November to 1 December 2011 in FreeMantle, Western Australia. This congress provides the scientific community with the opportunity for a vital exchange of ideas on nitrogen fixation and will feature high quality research across numerous disciplines and identify the emerging areas in the field. Among  these areas are the successful application of nitrogen fixation technology in agriculture and the development of new legumes and rhizobia for agriculture; achieving successful inoculation through improved technologies; and understanding the conundrums surrounding the life of rhizobia in soil and rhizosphere such as ineffective populations and competition.
