Preinoculation of treated seeds with all three Cronos Technologies promoted nodulation (number and biomass) that was not significantly different from the peat-based inoculant control applied at planting, but was significantly higher than either the uninoculated or the N controls, even when inoculation was performed as early as seven (CronosNod) or 35 (CronosTSI) days before planting (Table 4).
Although literature summaries are encouraging, caution should be used when interpreting such data because all inoculants are not equal and the conditions (e.g., rate of application, inoculant viability, bacteria strain used as additives, crop, environmental temperature, wilting period, and moisture levels) varied markedly among the studies.
