    Effect of Leaf Removal on Symbiotic Nitrogen Fixation in Peanut¹

    Authors: , , ,

Abstract

The effect of varying levels of leaf defoliation on the nodulation and nitrogen fixation of a Virginia and a spanish-type peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) cultivar was investigated in the greenhouse. Five leaf defoliation treatments - (a) control (no leaflet removal), (b) 25, (c) 50, (d) 75, and (e) 100 - were carried out every 3 to 5 days throughout the growing period.
