Inoculum for Legumes
Choose from 17 different rhizobial inoculum strains including Baptisia, Dalea, Lupinus and many more. 1 bag will inoculate up to 1 pound of seed.
Most legume species harbor beneficial bacteria called rhizobia on their roots. Genus-specific strains of this bacterium called inoculum can aid in the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen and improve long-term health of native plant communities, especially in low fertility soils.
HOW TO USE: Add inoculant to dampened seed and mix thoroughly.
WHEN TO ADD: At time of cold, moist stratification, or if direct seeding, as close to planting time as possible.
SPECIAL CARE: Protect inoculated seed from sunlight or drying winds - cover seed as quickly as possible with soil or mulch.
ALTERNATIVE METHODS: Inoculant can be mixed with potting soil when planting in flats or peat pots; directly in the seed furrows along with seed at time of transplanting; or to potted plants by making a hole with a pencil. Inoculum may also be added to potting mix for container grown plants or into the bottom of a hole when transplanting container grown or bare root seedlings.
