Abstract: The Rhizobium sp., isolated from the root nodules of the leguminous fodder herbMefiforus alba, produced large amounts of extracellular polysaccharides (EPS) (963.5 pdml) in a y e a t extract mannitol medium. Growth and EPS production started simultaneously, but EPS production reached its maximum during the stationary phase of growth of the bacteria, at 20 hours. EPS production was increased with all of the thirteen sugars tested. Different nitrogen sources, such as nitrates, glutamic acid, casamino acid and L…
