In soils where there is no or little rhizobium population the response from using a rhizobium inoculant is easily noticeable in terms of plant health and yield.
Where peas have been grown in the past or there is indigenous rhizobium population, it is still possible to see a significant yield increase using inoculant containing rhizobium that has been specially “strain selected”. Not all rhizobium strains are the same, some can fix nitrogen more effectively than others.
The manufacturing process at Legume Technology uses ‘aseptic’ manufacturing techniques to give super-high numbers of ‘elite’ strains. Legume Technology inoculant not only delivers the nitrogen supplying bacteria but can also supply other bio-stimulants, growth promoting bacteria and essential micro-nutrients to push pea yield and protein content to their limit.
