The interactions between hybrid and inoculant only affected EE (p = 0.002) and NDF (p = 0.009) concentrations.
The corresponding doses were: zero; 16; 32; 48; 64 g.100[kg.sup.-1] of seeds, combined with the presence and absence of the liquid inoculant, in the dosage of 200 ml per 100 kg of seeds, containing Bradyrhizobium japonica bacteria, in the concentration of 5x109 Cfu/Ml, via treatment of soybean seeds.
The process is repeated until all the fodder is stored in the silo," he says.He notes silage made using a quality inoculant maintains a stable aerobic stability at feed-out stage while that made using molasses heats up.
On April 28, they made another purchase of 2,164 bags of NBEM-21 Microbial Inoculant and Soil Activator worth P3,246,000.
The concept of using a microbial inoculant for silage involves adding fast-growing homofermentative LAB in order to dominate the fermentation, thereby producing higher quality silage.
Mixed inoculants (combinations of microorganisms) interact synergistically which yields better and show quick results.
Moreover, inoculant was applied before ensiling and a drop in pH (4.0) was observed in ensiled samples at the third day of the experimental fermentation.
Nodulation was very poor at both locations and slightly superior when treated seeds received peat-based standard inoculant at sowing (Table 4).
Furthermore, silage treated with inoculant containing P freudenreichii tended to reduce mould counts and improved aerobic stability of the silage [13].
The treatments consisted of the combinations of doses of inoculant containing Azospirillum brasilense (control without inoculation, 100, 200 and 300 mL [ha.sup.-1] of the commercial product) and forms of application (seed inoculation, application in the sowing furrow, soil spraying after sowing and foliar spraying at the beginning of plant tillering), with 4 replicates.
Efficiency groups are helpful mainly as guidelines for inoculant preparation, but can also serve as the source for expecting the need to inoculate certain plants.

The expansion of products includes primary, secondary, and vertical tillage, air seeders, commodity carts, cover crop seeders, spinner-type fertilizer spreaders, air-boom applicators and granular applicators for fertilizer, insecticide, seed, seed inoculant and forage preservatives.
