Three different pea cultivars were used in this investigation to study the effect of cultivars and different doses of N mineral fertilization along with three isolates of N-fixing bacteria on growth, yield and chemical composition of those cultivars. Results showed that the three cultivars varied in their flowering time, fresh and dry yield and almost differed in response to mineral fertilization doses and bio-fertilization isolates. The bio-fertilization increased pea plants vegetative growth, yield and yield components. Also, the bio-fertilization increased pod and seed qualities and increased their protein content along with reducing their contents of nitrate and nitrite. © 2015 Asian Network for Scientific Information.
