Abstract

In legume inoculation studies mercuric chloride is frequently used as a germicidal agent for sterilizing the legume seeds. While it is an effective disinfectant its use is often attended with objectionable results because of failure to remove all of the mercuric chloride from the seeds with the result that organisms surrounding the seeds may be killed thus preventing inoculation. In the course of some recent legume inoculation studies this difficulty became very apparent and as a result the extent of the toxic effect was investigated.
