Soybean biologicals remain a good investment

May 25, 2023

An agronomist says soybean seed inoculants remain a good investment for farmers.

Kurt Seevers with Verdesian says the rhizobia in the treatment helps provide adequate nitrogen for crops without having to add as much fertilizer. “If you find something that’s going to give you a return on investment, it doesn’t matter how big that return is, as long as it’s a return, then you’re making money.”

Seevers says many farmers believe having rhizobia in the soil means they don’t need to add more, but he says when the soybean plant deteriorates in the fall, the rhizobia leave the nodules and compete for resources in the soil making them less effective.
