Nitrogen modulation of legume root architecture signaling pathways involves phytohormones and small regulatory molecules

Mohd-Radzman, Nadiatul A.; Djordjevic, Michael; Imin, Nijat

Description

Nitrogen, particularly nitrate is an important yield determinant for crops. However, current agricultural practice with excessive fertilizer usage has detrimental effects on the environment. Therefore, legumes have been suggested as a sustainable alternative for replenishing soil nitrogen. Legumes can uniquely form nitrogen-fixing nodules through symbiotic interaction with specialized soil bacteria. Legumes possess a highly plastic root system which modulates its architecture according to the...[Show more]
