    The Rhizobium group of bacteria pose no reported toxicity to humans. Given this, there are low levels of other microbes in some inoculant carriers so respiratory protection such as particle masks and gloves should be used to avoid minor inhalation or skin irritation when handling.
    Dry granular inoculants are dustier by nature than other inoculant carriers such as peat and freeze dried products. As per label recommendation, when handling ALOSCA granular products use a dust mask to prevent inhalation and eye protection, gloves and appropriate clothing (long pants and long-sleeved shirt) to avoid eye and skin contact.
