The contributions of plant genetics to the construction of upper yielding plants of enhanced caliber are good documented. those successes were discovered in the course of the program of plant breeding innovations to a various array of genetically managed features. Such powerful breeding approaches will remain the first process hired for the advance of latest crop cultivars; besides the fact that, new ideas in phone and molecular biology will offer extra ways for genetic amendment. there was significant hypothesis lately about the strength impression of latest innovations in cellphone and molecular biology on plant development. those genetic engineering strategies should still supply precise possibilities to change the genetic make-up of plants if utilized to current breeding systems. Many questions needs to be replied as a way to establish particular functions of those new applied sciences. This look for functions would require enter from plant scientists engaged on quite a few features of crop development. This quantity is meant to evaluate the interrelationships among traditional plant breeding and genetic engineering.

Economic importance of biological nitrogen fixation Although almost eighty percent of the earth's nitrogen, plants are unable to use directly this atmosphere is molecular vast nitrogen source for growth. Instead, they depend upon nitrogen being avai lable in a fixed form such as ammonium or nitrate.

Bacteria attached to root hairs and epidermal The micro-organisms cel Is, and subsequently colonised the root mucigel. remained inter-cellular when associated with viable root cel Is, but invaded senescent epidermal and cortical cel Is in a manner simi lar to that proposed for microbial colonisation of decomposing roots (96). Usually, invasion of the inner cortex and stele of intact explants was ~ot observed, although some bacteria entered this region in damaged roots. These studies confirmed previous results with whole plants that although a nitrogen fixing association can be establ ished between Azospirl I lum and plant roots, it is not known whether any of the fixed nitrogen is excreted by the bacteria and transferred to the host root cel Is (97).
