Abstract

Rhizobia which are soil bacteria capable of symbiosis with legume plants in the root or stem nodules and perform nitrogen fixation. Rhizobial genera include Agrobacterium, Allorhizobium, Aminobacter, Azorhizobium, Bradyrhizobium, Devosia, Mesorhizobium, Methylobacterium, Microvirga, Ochrobacterum, Phyllobacterium, Rhizobium, Shinella and Ensifer (Sinorhizobium). Review of the literature was carried out using the keywords Rhizobium, Agrobacterium, Bradyrhizobium, Herbaspirillum and Sinorhizobium. Rhizobial nodulation symbioses steps are included flavonoid signaling, Nod factor induction, and Nod factor perception, root hair responses, rhizobial infection, cell division and formation of nitrogen-fixing nodule. Rhizobium improves sustainable production by boosting organic nitrogen content.
