Liquid inoculant bag

What form of inoculant is best to use can depend on a variety of factors. Available equipment, the environment and cost can all have an influence on the decision. While there is no one answer that covers every scenario, the affordability and efficacy of liquid-based inoculants has certainly improved over time and made their potential … Read more

Root nodules

Harvest is when farmers reap the reward of a well-nodulated legume crop, and can see the result of the inoculant first used during seeding. Unfortunately, there are times when adequate nodulation does not occur, even when an inoculant has been used. Listed below are several reasons as to why this might happen: soil pH: rhizobia … Read more

To survive long-term, rhizobia must learn to fight for valuable resources. This can have a negative impact on their ability for future nitrogen fixation.

One reason why many farmers do not inoculate their soybeans is because they feel that their fields already have high numbers of rhizobia that inoculating isn’t worth it. They feel that the rhizobia population has been built up sufficiently over years of soybean inoculation that enough are already present to provide adequate root nodulation. While … Read more

Percent of nitrogen supplied by n fixation

  Nitrogen fertilizer management is important for the success of any crop.  It is an expensive input, so growers are always looking for the best way to reduce application costs while still increasing yields. Nitrogen fertilizer is produced from natural gas, which makes the cost of the fertilizer vulnerable to changes in the supply and … Read more

How AGPT Works

It’s common knowledge that Mother Nature can be cruel to farmers. Once crops have been seeded, they can be left exposed and vulnerable to the harshest of weather conditions. Farmers know this, and take every precaution they can to protect their investment. Nothing can provide guaranteed protection, but every step taken gives their crops a … Read more

Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria Form Root Nodules on Soybean Roots

Many Midwest farmers choose not to use an inoculant for their soybeans. They feel, due to the high number of nitrogen fixing bacteria already in the soil, that inoculating offers little benefit. However, after the record-setting drought of 2012, they may want to reconsider. Jim Beuerlein and Harold Watters, agronomists with the Ohio State University, … Read more
