dc.description.abstractThe traditional peat legume inoculants are viewed by western Canadian farmers as being difficult to apply. Accordingly, more "user-friendly" inoculants are being developed to ensure more wide-spread inoculation of legumes. A liquid inoculant developed by LiphaTech was evaluated as a carrier for Rhizobium leguminosarum strains 99A1 for lentil and 128C56G for pea. These two strains survived at titres exceeding log 8.0 per mL for ten months at 5°C and there was no loss of viability during shipping and handling. The Prairie Agricultural Machine Institute (PAMI) determined that the liquid inoculant gave a very flowable and uniform coverage of the seeds when applied through a grain auger and various types of seeding equipment. Liquid inoculant for pea and lentil resulted in yields equal or better than those observed for the traditional peat-based inoculant.en_US
