Establishing a healthy plant stand as quickly as possible is critical in protecting your crops health and ensuring maximum yield potential. Part of that process means that the plant has to be able to access the inputs it needs to get there. That starts with the development of a healthy root system including the development of nitrogen fixing nodules. Those nodules need healthy rhizobia bacteria in order to fix nitrogen and develop properly. That is where we see the power of inoculants. Inoculants provide instant access to that healthy rhizobia by placing it in formulation either directly on or close to the seed speeding along the development of that plant.
In this episode of the Soybean School, we talk inoculants with Mike Verhoef of Becker Underwood.
