Inoculant Guide 2017: Quick Tips

Jason Sarver, Mississippi State University Extension agronomist, says the proper use of inoculants has been especially important in his state  because of the increase in peanut acreage. As Sarver notes, any new ground or ground out of production for four or more years should always receive an inoculant application. “An inoculant should be used if peanut is being planted in ...

Inoculant Guide 2017: For Peanuts, Nature’s Way Is Best

Within each tiny peanut seed is the potential to produce a big healthy plant capable of setting hundreds of pegs per plant that become pods containing multiple kernels inside. Reaching that maximum yield potential is only possible by providing that seed with everything it needs to germinate quickly and grow vigorously from the start. One component added in-furrow with the ... Read More »

Inoculant Guide 2017: Countdown to Success

Using the latest, most advanced science and technology to produce maximum yield and quality is the goal of peanut producers, university and Extension researchers and crop input companies. With an inoculant product, this means identifying the best and most active bacteria that will work quickly around the germinating seed to colonize roots and begin supplying nitrogen to the crop in ...

Inoculant Guide 2017: Using Inoculants Adds Up

Using an inoculant product every year is only meaningful if it can be shown in real numbers adding to the overall bottom line of the producer. While many researchers over the years have conducted trials to show the effectiveness of inoculants, North Carolina State University Extension agronomist David Jordan has an ongoing project to show peanut yield response and economic ...

As planning begins for the next growing season, Verdesian Life Sciences has added Primo Power CL, a new liquid inoculant, to its seed enhancement portfolio. This peanut inoculant opens the door for more nodules, which provide more available nitrogen to increase the potential number of pegs and pods ... Read More »

Inoculate Against Nitrogen Failure

Researchers agree that peanuts respond better to the nitrogen fixation provided by Rhizobia bacteria than they do to direct application of nitrogen fertilizer. A lack of peanut-specific Rhizobia in the soil and in close proximity to the emerging seed can slow the availability of nitrogen to the growing plant, which allows for other problems, such as disease, to occur. An ... Read More »

Quick Tips For Inoculant Use

Remember how important this one input is to a top-yielding crop. Inoculants are an essential input on peanuts. How often to apply an inoculant likely depends on each producers preference for making certain that fresh, viable, peanut-specific, nitrogen-fixing bacteria are in close proximity to the seed so that when germination occurs, the bacteria can readily enter the roots and begin ...
