When sowing a legume pasture, it is vital to remember the importance of treating the seed with an effective rhizobial inoculant. The use of inoculants results in greater root biomass and an increase in nodulation, which increases plant vigour and yield. Compared to the relatively small cost of inoculation, nodule failure is very expensive, as, without root nodulation with effective rhizobia, the plants will deplete soil nitrogen for their growth requirements.
