  1. Soybean
  2. Peas
  3. Beans

Which of the above are known for Nitrogen fixation?

Answer: [D] 1, 2, 3, & 4

Nitrogen fixation is a process in which atmospheric nitrogen is converted to ammonia, a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen that is necessary for plants to grow. Crops like peas, beans and lentils can fix nitrogen from the atmosphere with the help of symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacteria.
