Nodulator®

Granular Legume Inoculant

Keeping inoculation clean and simple

Nodulator® granules deliver the considerable rewards of inoculation without any dirty work. Simply load up the small seeds box at sowing and deliver smooth, evenly sized granules directly in the planting furrow. That precise application of a product with very high rhizobia counts promotes optimal nodulation and crop yields with large quantities of residual nitrogen left waiting to feed the following crop.

Nodulator is an ideal inoculant solution for dry sowing. Stringent production methods produce more uniform granules than the industry average, resulting in better flow through the seeder and a lot less dust. When the break comes, you can be confident high levels of rhizobia are readily available around each seed.

Key benefits

  • Smooth, evenly sized granules provide superior fl ow, more accurate metering and even distribution in the planting furrow.
  • Application into the furrow reduces compatibility issues and protects the live organisms from hot or dry surface conditions and chemical treatment.
  • At least 6 weeks’ inoculant life in the soil allows early dry sowing ahead of rain.
  • Lower rates for wider rows mean extra convenience and cost-effectiveness.

How it works

Nodulator® contains over one million live rhizobia per gram. The rhizobia are ‘captured’ by the growing roots of the crop and form a symbiotic relationship that promotes nodulation. The nodules that grow on the roots produce enough nitrogen to both increase the growth and yield of the host plant itself and leave sufficient residual nitrogen in the soil to feed the following crop.

Applying Nodulator into the furrow reduces compatibility issues and protects the live organisms from hot or dry surface conditions and chemical treatment.
