Bean and pea rhizonium bacteria

Bean    None Given

Aloha, I am looking for a product I used to get for pea and bean problem. It was a powder packet where you pour a little into the seed packet to inoculate the seeds. I have not been able to find it anywhere on this Island Maui. Maybe you could direct me to the name of such a product and where I can purchase some. I just used to go to Ace or True Value and ask for pea and Bean Innoculant. Thank you

The inoculant you referring to is Rhizobium leguminosarum (Rhizobia bacteria). They are nitrogen fixing bacteria applied with peas, beans and vetch (in general legumes) to make this plants nitrogen powerhouses. The are many products available online. For example Garden Combination Inoculant (Guard N), Pea, Lentil, and Vetch Inoculant (N DURE).
