THE excretion of nitrogen compounds from leguminous root nodules which has been demonstrated in this laboratory with a sterile culture system and, from the practical point of view, investigated with ordinary pot cultures, has not been shown in the pot cultures of all investigators1,2. With a sterile culture system Wilson has accomplished the excretion almost regularly3.
