CLOVER SEED INOCULATION
Clovers are only able to use nitrogen from the air if specific strains of Rhizobium bacteria are present in nodules on their roots. To ensure that the best strain of Rhizobium bacteria is present for each clover species, inoculant is applied to the clover seed before planting (inoculation process). Inoculant is finely ground peat moss which acts as a carrier for the Rhizobium bacteria. Inoculants which also include an adhesive to hold the inoculant to the seed and aid in keeping the bacteria alive in dry soil are superior to inoculants without an adhesive. Good clover seed inoculation is especially important the first time a clover species is planted in a new area. Pre-inoculated seed can be purchased of most clover species.

Compiled by Gerald Evers and Ray Smith, Texas A&M System AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Overton. Research Center Technical Report No. 98-3. (Revised June 2006). Sponsored by the Oregon Clover Commission.
- Coats your seed with a careful formula of minerals, scientifically selected compounds and unique strains of Rhizobium (Inoculation) which are essential to germination and growth. The coating is applied to seed with a water-soluble adhesive, completely surrounding each seed, and helps sustain their viability in the bag and during establishment.
- Contains a fungicide that provides a powerful systemic agent extremely effective against Phytopthroa, Pithium and Downy Mildew, and gives Apache Arrowleaf Clover, LA S-1 Clover, Ball Clover and Dixie Crimson Clover seeds more opportunity to deliver their full productive and profitable potential.
- ENDURINOC BRAND SEED COATING + APRON XL ™LS, and Apache Arrowleaf Clover are exclusive products of East Texas Seed Company. Trial results have demonstrated better stands and higher yields than clovers that were not coated with Endurinoc.
- Is the seed coating that can allow up to twice as many seedlings to survive, which will enhance forage production significantly.
