This practice note from Legumes Translated explains how to effectively inoculate the seed or soil for successful soybean crops. Different products types and inoculant strains are discussed, and key practice points are highlighted, like doubling the dose if soybeans have never been grown in the intended field and inoculating and sowing should take plans on the same day!
Further information is provided, and a list of inoculant producers is provided. This tool is not specific to organic agriculture but is applicable for all soy producers who aim for higher quality and higher yields by utilising biological nitrogen fixation.

Summary translation

Le soja, comme toutes les légumineuses, est l‘hôte d’une bactérie fixatrice d‘azote. Pour le soja, il s‘agit de la bactérie Bradyrhizobium japonicum qui n‘est pas présente naturellement dans les sols européens. Une inoculation soigneuse des semences ou du sol est nécessaire pour que la racine de la plante en développement soit infectée par cette bactérie.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Do’s and don’t of soybean seed and soil inoculation.
What problem does the tool address?:In Europe, the nitrogen-fixing nodule bacteria in soy, Badyrhizobium japonicum, does not occur naturally. Careful seed or soil inoculation is required so that the developing plant root is colonized by this bacterium.
What solution does the tool offer?:Proper inoculation, seed or soil, of soy is essential to the crops success, as it covers the nitrogen needs of the crop, increases grain yields and protein concentration.
