7075. Vandecaveye, S.C.. 1927. Effect of moisture, temperature, and other climatic conditions on R. leguminosarum in the soil.. Soil Sci. 23:355-362.
Looked at Rhizobium survival in the Palouse, particularly during the hot, dry months. R. leguminosarum had no problem surviving wide extremes of soil moisture, while soil flooding was detrimental to them. Rhizobium survival should be 10-15 years or more without a host plant. Dust storms did distribute Rhizobium, but not enough to insure uniform nodulation.
