Directions  for  using  BIOFIX  in  Soybean

i) Make holes at 5-6cm intervals, then drop seed on one side of the hole and fertilizer on the other and cover. Seed and fertilizer should not get into contact.

Inoculation is the process of bringing the appropriate rhizobia into contact with legume seeds or roots

ii) Make holes 5-6cm deep. Put fertilizer at bottom of hole, cover the hole with soil - about halfway. Put in the seed then cover well. Ensure the seed and fertilizer do not get into contact.
