Pea Inoculants?

May 4, 2021 | 07:17 1 I grow yellow field peas but only in a limited amount, enough to get some pea straw bales for my cows and to have a legume in rotation. Pea inoculant choice was never much of an issue until I got my latest air cart which is a New Holland with sectional control. I had in the past for the most part used modulator XL granular. Apparently this clay based granular builds up and plugs the rollers on this type of air cart. So the first year I switched to Cell-tech from NexusBioAg, I didn’t like it much, I found it was to fine. So the next year, took a chance and went back to nodulator, used the canola cage as recommended by Basf rep. and it worked fine. This year did the same thing and it did not work, plugged up the rollers and the cage, would not work. So just wondering what everybody uses for pea inoculant? Reply With Quote

I do not put any other chemical seed treatments on my seed either and my crops yield as good as any in the area. Other companies tell you to order in the fall to ensure supply. The rep for Bioorganics says the can make this in short order. I got mine within a week ordered at end of April Reply With Quote
