The Q&A Archives: Inoculants

Question: What are inoculates and why and when should they be used?

Answer: In very basic terms, seed inoculant increases root initiation for more vigorous growth. It stimulates root and root hair development and aids in the uptake of nutrients. You can plant legumes such as beans and peas without treating with inoculant, but treating the seeds prior to sowing will help your plants grow faster and healthier.
