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.
