Abstract The effects of two insecticides, DDT and lindane, and two herbicides, Dalapon-Na and 2, 4, 5-T, upon the growth and nitrogen-fixing capacity of Azotobacter vinelandii in pure culture were investigated using concentrations of the pesticides equivalent to the usual field application rates, and fifty times these levels. The acetylene reduction technique was used to assay nitrogen fixation. No significant effects of the pesticides at either concentration were detected upon growth or acetylene reduction.
