Those plant that fixes atmospheric nitrogen to the soil is called leguminous plant.
  • For agriculture, legume plants are important, as they are an essential source of protein for human and animal consumption.
  • This high protein content results from their ability to use atmospheric nitrogen for their nutrition as a result of their symbiotic interaction with rhizobia.
