Effect of Rhizobium spp. and rot-knot nematodes, i.e. Meloidogyne incognita on N2 fixation as well as absorption and translocation of N was studied in chickpea plant (Cicer arietinum L.) cultivar G-130 grown in earthen pots containing steam sterilized sandy loam soil. N in the form of KNO3 was applied before sowing @ 10 ppm. M .incognita caused significant reduction in nodulation, nitrogenase activity of nodules and nitrate reductase activity of leaves.
