Compatibility between rhizobial inoculants and fungicides used for seeds treatment remains controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the fungicide Funaben T (thiram – 45%, carbendazim – 20%) on the nodulation of soybean (Glycine max cv. Nawiko) inoculated with two Bradyrhizobium japonicum strains (USDA 110 and USDA 123). Reduced nodulation of soybean was observed in the treatments with fungicide applied and fertilized with nitrogen (80 kg ha–1). The strongest depression of nodulation was observed when both treatments were used simultaneously.
The authors have declared that no conflict of interests exist.
