Additional Information

Legume Inoculation

Legumes such as beans, peas, clover and alfalfa are able to access (“fix”) nitrogen because their roots host symbiotic bacteria of the genus Rhizobium. The plant roots feed the bacteria while the bacteria take molecular nitrogen from the air and convert it to a form that the plant can use.

Different legumes require different species of rhizobia to form a successful relationship. Unless otherwise noted, our legume seed is sold “raw”: it has not been inoculated with the appropriate bacteria in a process called rhizocoating.

We recommend using fresh inoculant each time you plant a legume even if you have planted inoculated seed in the same spot before. Fresh inoculant ensures an immediate increase in bacterial populations. When you are ready to put the seed in the ground, moisten it with water, pour the inoculant over it and mix. Protect from direct sunlight and plant before the seed dries out, or remoisten and remix.

Our inoculants do not contain genetically modified materials.

Organic Certification

Inoculants, soil amendments, fertilizers, livestock supplies and pesticides are labeled as:
OMRI: Organic Materials Review Institute. Most state certifying agencies, including MOFGA, accept OMRI approval.
MOFGA: Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association. Reviewed by MOFGA and allowed for use on MOFGA-certified farms. Check with your certifier.
WSDA: The Washington State Department of Agriculture’s Organic Certifying division has approved these products for use in organic agriculture in Washington State. MOFGA has indicated that they will accept products on this list for their certification program. Check with your certifier.
Nat’l List: One-ingredient products on the NOP* List of Allowed Substances (subpart G of the Organic Foods Production Act, sections 205.601-606). Check with your certifier.
AYC: Products whose active ingredient is on the list of allowed substances, but which are not on the OMRI or WSDA list. Ask your certifier.
Not Allowed: A few of the products we list are not allowed for organic production but we think they have a place in sensible agriculture and can be used when certification is not an issue.
