Title: Molybdenum Deficiency Inhibits Nitrogen Fixation by Legumes 
Author: Fox, Robert L.; Whitney, A Sheldon
Date: 1978
Publisher: University of Hawaii
Citation: Fox RL, Whitney AS. 1978. Molybdenum deficiency inhibits nitrogen fixation by legumes. Honolulu (HI): University of Hawaii. 1 p. (Illustrated Concepts in Tropical Agriculture; IC-12).
Abstract: Molybdenum is required by N-fixing soil rhizobia, but it may be deficient in acidic tropical soils. An experiment with soybeans on an Oxisol showed that while added N could compensate for Mo deficiency in the soil, growth without added N was poor. When Mo fertilizer was added in the absence of N fertilizer, effective nodulation of the legume was able to provide N to the plant and resulted in superior growth.
