    Soil inoculants are used for a variety of reasons. In some cases, we add soil organisms that have a known beneficial effect. A symbiotic relationship is one that is mutually beneficial. In return for the plant feeding the rhizobia carbon from photosynthesis and giving it a home, the bacteria can “fix” atmospheric nitrogen into a form that the plant can use. Some growers use a liquid/peat inoculant combination on first time pulse crop fields and in adverse soil moisture or temperature conditions, where the liquid is applied first and used as the sticker for the peat powder. Storage. Inoculants contain living bacteria and should be kept cool and out of direct sunlight.

      Select the proper inoculant for the legume species. Check the expiration date on the package before using inoculants to insure they are viable or will still be viable by the expected planting date. Always store seed and inoculants in a cool dry place . We give an account of legume inoculant production, quality control and use in East and Southern Africa, with particular emphasis on Zimbabwe and Kenya. INTRODUCTION Legumes are among the world's most important crops which, unlike other plant species, can obtain most of their N requirements from symbiotic Nz fixation.

    1. Introduction. Stephens and Rask () describe how different legume inoculant products are produced and formulated. This review considers inoculant quality and the means of evaluating it. The key to good quality inoculant products is an effective quality control system (Thompson, ), i.e., a series of quality checks during and after inoculant production that ensures that each seed after. Studies have shown that often (though not exclusively), the Rhizobium that comes from prepared inoculants is better at fixing nitrogen than the bacteria already in the soil. Also increasing the amount of bacteria results in more nitrogen fixing. That’s why you can never apply too much legume inoculant. The more you use, the better it works.

Summary. In this paper, the various stages of inoculant production at which improvements could be made or future research carried out are discussed, with particular reference to broth cultures of rhizobia, inoculant carriers, and by: Legume inoculants and their use: a pocket manual / jointly prepared by Nitrogen Fixation for Tropical Agricultural Legumes (NifTAL) Project, USA and FAO Fertilizer and Plant Nutrition Service, Land and Water Development Division, in association with FAO Crop and Grassland Production Service.

Book. provide dependable legume inoculants to assure effective nodulation of leguminous crops. The application of these bacteria to seed or soil is called "inoculation". This manual is concerned with methods of growing rhizobia, making effective legume inoculants, and using them properly to maximize food, forage and fiber production.

Inoculants. Our inoculants are formulated from natural, dry peat-based cultures of beneficial bacteria for treating legume seeds prior to planting. Inoculants encourage the formation of nitrogen-fixing nodules on leguminous plant roots to improve plant health and yield; suppress disease-causing microbes; and accelerate nutrient availability and assimilation.

Legumes, broadly defined by their unusual flower structure, podded fruit, and the ability of 88% of the species examined to date to form nodules with rhizobia ([de Faria et al., ][1]), are second only to the Graminiae in their importance to humans.

Currently, 39 different legume inoculants are manufactured in australia, covering about legume species. Granular inoculants varied markedly in their ability to improve grain legume nodulation. The size of response depended inversely on background nodulation from soil rhizobial populations.

The cost of a nodulation failure of hectares of soybean could exceed $60, Clearly, the continuing and uninterrupted use of high quality legume inoculants has a very large economic benefit to Australian farmers.

The use of AIRG quality assessed and approved inoculants is strongly recommended. About this book. Inoculants and Nitrogen Fixation of Legumes in Vietnam contains the proceedings of a workshop held in Hanoi, Vietnam February The papers cover applied and fundamental issues of rhizobial and non-rhizobial inoculant production and application.

Rhizobium Inoculants for Legumes One reason we plant legumes like clovers and alfalfa is because they produce their own nitrogen. But not always. Keep reading to ensure that your legumes do produce nitrogen. Nitrogen fertilizer is expensive. Anything you can do. Types of legume inoculants Scientists have discovered that inoculating legumes with nitrogen-fixing bacteria can increase crop yields.

The theory is simple if your plants lack the proper bacteria to team up with, they're stuck begging ammonia out of the soil rather than producing their own.

• To maximize biological nitrogen fixation, inoculate legumes with the appropriate Rhizobia bacteria. Do not use an inoculant if the legume species is not listed on the package or company literature.

• Because inoculants are cultures of living organisms, contact suppliers well in advance of. Vietnamese farmers do not inoculate their legume crops; rather they apply fertiliser N at rates of kg N/ha.

Substituting fertiliser N with inoculant could save them US$ million annually. Legume Inoculants and Their Use () by Nitrogen Fixation for Tropical Agricultural Legumes (NifTAL) and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is an excellent guide for Rhizobium technology for practitioners.

The kind of bacteria used for legume inoculants is Rhizobium leguminosarum, which is a nitrogen fixing bacteria. These bacteria “infect” the legumes growing in the soil and cause the legumes to form the nitrogen fixing nodules that make peas and beans the nitrogen powerhouses they are.There are special strains of inoculant for beans, peas, soybeans, etc.

or you can use a multipurpose one that treats most leguminous vegetables. You need to apply them when you sow your legumes. Once in the ground, the bacteria can remain alive but dormant for years, so a few years without a leguminous partner won’t kill them.Legume Inoculants.

We use top-performing inoculants proven to work. The Advantages of Coated Grasses and Legume Seed for Cover Crops tells more about why coating and proper inoculation can help ensure successful cover cropping.
