In nature, biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) provides most of the reactive nitrogen that is required for protein formation and plant growth. Legumes host BNF, so understanding BNF provides a foundation for many decisions made in legume cropping.This practice note from AgroBioInstitute in Bulgaria explains the process of nitrogen fixation and incudes the key practice points. It was elaborated in eh framework of the Legumes Translated project. Iantcheva, Anelia and Naydenova, Galina (2020) Biological nitrogen fixation in legumes. Legumes Translated Practice Note No. 3.
