Inoculating legumes is a very profitable practice. Rhizobium inoculants increase yields, are easier and cheaper to use when growing legumes.For example, one satchet of soyabean inoculant is able to dress 100kg of Soyabean seed required for 1ha and the inoculant satchet only costs $5.00. Fertilizing the same Soyabean crop with mineral nitrogen would require 4 bags of Ammonium Nitrate per ha  which will cost a farmer about $116.00/ha.Rhizobia inoculants significantly reduces production costs and hence increase profitability.
