The inoculant is a dormant, beneficial,
symbiotic bacteria which helps the plant
obtain nitrogen from the air (in the soil). Keep unused inoculant under refrigeration as it is to be kept in a dormant state until sown.
How to apply inoculant to the seed:
. Place seed in a container (say a bucket).
. Add inoculant and some powdered milk (dry) as a sticking agent and medium for the bacteria to break it's dormancy and be ready for the emerging plant. Stir well.
. Add enough water to wet the seed but no surplus water. Stir well.
. Wash your hands. (You will see how
effective the milk powder is as a sticker and it will harden on your hands if you leave it).
. Broadcast and rake in seed.
5g inoculant for up to 1kg seed.
50g inoculant for up to 25kg seed.
