We are using Sono Ag's Micro NOC inoculant for all of our cover crop mixes.  In addition to being OMRI Approved (see below for certificate), it has the widest diversity of biological rhizobia and organisms on the market.  The following is a listing of the rhizobia species included in our MicroNOC.  The amount of inoculants needed varies per species and we apply amounts suggested by research and the manufacture.
