Test winner 2020: RhizoFix® RF-10
In an independent study by the Augustenberg Agricultural Technology Centre, RhizoFix® RF-10 was found to be the best-performing rhizobial inoculant for soya beans.
The LTZ Augustenberg trial tested a total of 15 rhizobia inoculants for soya beans and examined their influence on yield, among other aspects:
“Soya inoculated with RhizoFix RF-10 had the highest yield, with 27.9 dt ha-1 (p < 0.001).”

the yield level for all other inoculants tested was 22.8 dt ha-1. The uninoculated control had the lowest yield, with 15.1 dt ha-1.

Good to know:
As legumes, soya beans can enter into a symbiotic relationship with root nodule-forming bacteria called rhizobia. These root nodules allow legumes to fix atmospheric nitrogen and convert it into a plant-available form, which is then available to the following crop.
Only plants with a sufficient number of root nodules can achieve optimal performance. Using RhizoFix® can help increase both yield and vitality.
