In this link, they say the heavy use of nitrogen will interupt the Rhizobia symbiotic relationship with the plants.


Quote:
They can supply the plant with all of its nitrogen needs. In return, the host plant supplies the rhizobium with simple carbohydrates. The plant can give up to 20% of its supply of carbohydrates to the bacteria. However, if there is a sufficient supply of nitrogen in the soil to meet the plantís needs, the plant will not engage in the relationship with the bacteria.
