  1. a As determined by using the Petri dish bioassay [89]. Values are mean of five independent replicates.
  2. b Percentage of germination of O. crenata seeds that were at 0–3 mm from host root
  3. c Percentage of O. crenata germinated seeds that attach on M. truncatula roots.
  4. d Number of resulting nodules counted 25 days after inoculation.
  5. * indicates that differences are statistically significant (LSD, P < 0.05)
