The bacteria are useful for effecting N2 fixation, nodulation, growth and yield of herbicide resistant or tolerant leguminous plants treated with herbicide. They are particularly useful for providing competitive advantage to superior N2 fixing rhizobial strains over non-resistant indigenous rhizobia for nodulation of herbicide resistant or tolerant leguminous plants.
