Seed inoculation is a commonly used mode of application

Under seed inoculation, seeds are coated with microorganisms that help in nitrogen fixation and hence are majorly used for legumes and soybean production. Agricultural inoculants are majorly used in seed treatment for the production of legumes and soybean crops. Seed inoculation is the most common method of inoculation as it is easy and generally effective under most conditions. Countries such as U.S. and Brazil are the major producers of soybean in the world. U.S., Canada, Brazil, and U.K prefer seed treatments with seed inoculant products instead of genetically modified crops in organic crop production.
