Soybean School: The Power of Inoculants

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.

Using synchronization and induction as a lambing time-management tool

Lambing is an exciting but exhausting time for sheep farmers. A typical breeding cycle with natural service over two heat cycles usually results in well over two weeks of late nights, early mornings, and intense work. To manage the labour load (pun intended), some farmers have adopted a synchronization and induction program to tighten the…Read more ยป
