Application of Rhizobium Bacteria inoculant 

Treatment of Lucerne seed with Rhizobium bacteria is essential prior to sowing in order to ensure successful root nodulation and efficient nitrogen fixing. Inoculation is a simple process involving mixing the seed with a powder and water. The mixture is allowed to quickly dry before drilling.

The Rhizobium bacteria take in nitrogen from the atmosphere and turn it into ammonia (NH3), a kind of natural fertiliser for the plant. The plant provides the Rhizobium bacteria sugars in return, which are produced through photosynthesis.

Recommendation for sowing

Prepare a stale seedbed in advance of sowing.

Divide the area into several sections, e.g. 5 sections, split the seed up into 5 buckets or bowls. Mix the seed with sand or loam, prior to sowing for ease of broadcast as the sowing rate is low.

Use a harrow or roller after sowing to create good soil to seed contact.
