  • Description: Only legumes of the cowpea cross-inoculation group, including the winged bean ( Psophocarpus tetragonolobus ) were found to form nodules in a temperate zone soil with no previous history of legume cropping. Isolates from root nodules from uninoculated winged beans grown in the field only nodulated legumes in the cowpea cross-inoculation group. Rhizobium japonicum formed ineffective nodules with the winged bean.
