Treats up to 8 lbs of peas, beans, favas, peanuts, lentils, vetch, Austrian peas, or cowpeas.
Legumes grow best and produce more if the seeds are inoculated with a special bacteria culture before planting. (Actually you are inoculating your soil but coating seeds is the easiest way to do this) These bacteria form nodules on the roots of legumes "fixing" the nitrogen from the air into the soil nodules. All legumes benefit from inoculants. Inoculants are especially important when planting a legume for the first time, or in new soil. These cultures are plant specific, but we offer a mix of bacteria that will successfully inoculate: any combination of peas, beans, favas, peanuts, lentils, vetch, Austrian peas, or cowpeas. Directions are included.
Directions: Put seed in container and mix in few drops of water; just enough to lightly moisten seeds. Add inoculant and mix until all seeds are coated. You may also sprinkle inoculant directly in the furrow along with seeds using about 1 teaspoon every 2 feet of row. Plant and cover immediately. Bacteria will die if exposed to heat and sun.
Storage: Keep cool as possible; between 34 and 70 F is best. Do not expose to extreme heat or direct sunlight. Do not leave outside exposed to the elements or allow to freeze and thaw repeatedly.
Caution: Avoid breathing dust.
