What does inoculation do?
29 JulBy atadmin
By inoculating legumes you are dosing the legume’s root zone with high numbers of nitrogen fixing bacteria which will infect the emerging legume’s root structure following germination to from root nodule colonies as the roots grow. Generally the earlier the colonies initiate and more prolific they are the better the fixation capacity. While this process may occur if the soil has been sown to the legume and inoculated before, re-inoculation will help to optimise the process through delivering the most up to date elite strains which will fix a comparatively high weight of nitrogen per unit area.
