Certain strains of Rhizobium japonicum fail to produce effective nodules on the soybean variety ‘Hardee,’ Glycine max L. Merr.). F1, F2, and F3 generations of Hardee ✕ normal nodulating varieties were used to study the inheritance of the strain-specific ineffective nodulation of Hardee. Ineffective nodulation was found to be conditioned by a single dominant gene, which was given the symbol Rj2. Investigation of the parentage of Hardee indicated that the source of this gene was the parent ‘CNS.’
