What is an inoculant and what if I do not use one? Is it better to plant peas and legumes with or not?

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 without treating with inoculant, but treating the seeds prior to sowing will help your plants grow faster and healthier.
