Importance of Inoculating Legumes
A key reason to consider a legume cover crop is to increase nitrogen in the soil. This in turn benefits the following corn, brassica, grain, or grass crop. Many food plotters know inoculating soybeans* is crucial to properly fix large amounts of nitrogen. But are inoculants really required on other food plot cover crops like clover, peas, and sunn hemp? Absolutely! However, each legume needs a certain strain of bacteria. Without the correct rhizobia present that legume will not maximize nitrogen production.

So all legumes need rhizobia. What if your soil does not have the proper background population in the soil? Then you will need to inoculate. The problem is there is no a viable option to pre-inoculate most of the common legumes planted as food plot cover crops, including winter peas, crimson clover, winter hairy vetch, and sunn hemp. The rhizobium that nodulate these cover crop legumes are quite fragile and are very susceptible to dry environments. In most cases, they do not survive on the seed beyond 24 hours. In contrast, the rhizobium that nodulates alfalfa can survive on the seed for up to two years. Therefore, beware of pre-inoculated food plot cover crop seed. In most cases, there will not be any surviving rhizobia.

Thus, for maximum nitrogen production, it is important to add the correct strain of fresh inoculant to the seed at the time of planting. Keep in mind, each legume requires a certain strain to nodulate properly. For example, the strain that nodulates red clover will not nodulate crimson clover. Peas and vetches require their own specific strains. Likewise, any leftover soybean or alfalfa inoculant will not work with other seeds. The challenge has been, “How do I inoculate all the legumes in my food plot blend?” Until now, it has been difficult to find the right product to do it all.

Soil First® LINK™ Inoculant is the solution! This unique peat-based product will inoculate all of the common food plot cover crop legumes in one convenient package. A single Soil First® LINK™ Inoculant package treats 500# of seed, matching up well with 50# bags or 2000# totes. Furthermore, most commonly used food plot cover crop mixes include small grains and radishes. Soil First® LINK™ Inoculant covers the entire mix offering ease of use and convenience. The advantage of applying inoculant on the entire mix is all seed components carry the inoculant into the soil where the legume seeds will be nearby. This provides more complete nodulation of the legume and enhanced nitrogen fixation than if the inoculant was applied only to the legume seed.

We are proud to offer this unique, all-purpose product that will help take the guesswork and challenge out of inoculating food plot cover crop legumes. It is now easy for the farmer, gardener, or food plot weekend warrior to utilize a high quality product and maximize the benefit of cover crop legumes!
