Innoculant is live bacteria. It aids legumes (clovers, peas, beans) in nutrient transfer through their roots (nitrogen fixing). Legumes properly innoculated will perform (grow) much, much better than if they are not innoculated. The seeds should be innoclated and then let dry before planting.

Adams Briscoe sells all of the innoculant types and each legume may require a differen type of innoculant (bacteria).

Innoculant looks like a fine black powder, and to make it stick to the seed, a small amount of sugar-water can be be applied to the seed. Mix the innoculant with the sticky seed and then spread the seed out to dry before planting.

Thanks BSK
So I should look for the fine black powder in my seed
separate quantity of seed I'm going to plant
spray seed with sugar water
and then spread out to let dry before planting
how long will it take to dry, Hrs. or day or 2

Did you specifically order innoculant?

If you spread the innoculated seed out on heavy paper or something similar in the sun, it should be dry enough to run through a seed spread in no more than an hour.

A lot of the stuff you buy now is "pre-innoculated" meaning you just plant it as is. All the clover I bought from my co-op last year, I was told I didn't need an innoculant, and it all came up and was doing fantastic, until the sun moved closer to the earth this summer and it all died. I'd call the place you got it from and ask if it needs to be innoculated, it sounds like a lot of trouble to me. I'd buy the kind you just plant. By the way, I asked around last year just like you, and I had farmers who had grown clover all their life act like I was crazy, they never heard of "innoculating" their clover.

ALL legumes need to be inoclated to produce maximum growth. It will still germinate and grow without it, but the difference in inoculated versus the same plant uninoculated is striking.

However, some clovers can be puchased preinoculated. If they are preinoculated, the seed will be double it's normal size and generally a dusty gray color.

This is what I bought last year, it was Ladino and it was doing okay in the fall, by spring this stuff was going nuts, I was going to have some nice clover, but then it died.

BSK,... all my books say to NEVER let it dry in the sun. Plus,.. don't even expose the inoculate to extreme heat before applying it. Keep in the fridge.

Apparently direct sunlight and extreme heat kills the bacteria.
