What legume inoculant formulation or type should I use?

    There are 3 types of inoculant carrier commonly available in Australia for forage and crop legume inoculation.

    • Granular, sown in-furrow during seeding operation, see PRODUCT RANGE-Granular
    • Freeze dried, mixed with water and injected in-furrow during seeding operation or applied to seed as a slurry before seeding operation, see PRODUCT RANGE–Freeze dried.
    • Peat based, mixed with water and/or seed adhesive applied to seed as a slurry before seeding operation, see PRODUCT RANGE–Peat based.
      Product selection should reflect the end-users needs in terms of scale of farm operation and the inherent constraints they need to overcome to successfully deliver viable rhizobium to the furrow and establish productive nitrogen fixation.
