This granular garden inoculant aids in the growth and production of all varieties of garden beans (except soybeans), peas, and peanuts. It contains billions of live bacteria that are essential in the nitrogen fixing process of garden legume plants. These bacteria when properly placed in the root zone area of the soil, will actively convert atmospheric nitrogen into a usable form for the plant. Therefore enabling the plant to produce its own organic source of nitrogen, leading to lush vine growth and ultimately greater yields. This non-toxic, organic product is dated and should be used by December 31, 2017. Inoculating organisms include: rhizobium eguminosarum, R. phaseoli and other rhizobium species. Treats 4 ounces of peas or beans or a 40 foot row. One 2.3 oz packet.
