Abstract: Soil samples from different locations in Nigeria and Ghana were selected these soil samples were used to carry Most probable number test using six-fold serial dilution. Cowpea which allows more than one type of rhizobial to nodulate it was used as the trapping plant. Soils were found to contain 7.9 × 106 cells per gram of soil showing that although they can support the growth of leguminous plants the use of inoculant will enhance the growth and yield of the plants in these soils. It expected that groundnut, Bambara nut and soybeans will also be able to grow successfully on theses soils.
