Because each plant only forms a finite number of nodules, the ability of indigenous rhizobia to form nodules will limit the number produced by inoculant strains. This can limit nitrogen fixation, and in the American Midwest can mean that the plant derives less than 50% of its nitrogen from symbiosis. While this is generally seen as a competition between inoculant and indigenous rhizobia, various factors play a role. These include the great numerical superiority of the indigenous rhizobia in the bulk soil, and the limited mobility of the inoculant rhizobia. It is also assumed that indigenous rhizobia are also better adapted to soil conditions.
