Purchase Peanut Inoculant
|5 oz Bag - 100||
Legumes are a family of plants (Fabaceae) that have the ability to form a symbiosis or mutually beneficial partnership with unique strains of Rhizobia bacteria to convert atmospheric nitrogen (N2) to ammonia nitrogen (NH3). Usable nitrogen is created from atmospheric nitrogen by this relationship between a growing plant and soil bacteria and is virtually free to the producer as there is little or no need to purchase nitrogen fertilizer. This additional nitrogen improves soil fertility, produces higher protein, and increases forage yields in the legume and in many cases, for crops planted in following years. Treating the seed with the proper inoculant is insurance that the proper Rhizobia bacteria are present to create a nitrogen fixing environment. Use inoculant if the legume you are seeding has never been grown in that area or if it has been more than 3 years. Each 5 oz bag treats 100 lbs of seed. Each 4.69 lb bag treats 1500 lbs of seed.
This product treats Showy Partridgepea, Korean Lespedeza, Cowpea, Wild Indigo, Roundhead Lespedeza. Package will be marked Peanut, but is the proper rhizobia for these products.
