Abstract: The ahility of the Rhizobium sp., isolated from the root nodules of the leguminous pulse yielding shrub Cajanus cujan. to produce extracellular polysacccharides (EPS) was checked. A large amount of EPS (1,128 p d m l ) WAS produced by the bacteria in yeast extract mannitol medium. Growth and EPS production started simultaneously, hut the production reached its maximum level in the stationary phase of growth at 28 h. The EPS production by this Rhizobium sp. was much higher than by many other strains from nodul…
