peas, no inoculant

Put enough inoculant to seed a quarter of peas. Had a breakdown and couldn't seed that day. Weighed product next morning to make sure rate was right. tested again in about an hour an all good. finished field and discovered a LOT left in tank. Product bridged in tank. Any where from right amount to no product on field. Now what?

I would start where you finish and start again. Go till it runs out. That’s about your only option.

Doesn't solve your current problem but to avoid future problems like this, put cameras in your tanks. Just a great tool to have.

There was a Govt trial done in Alberta on ground that had never had pulses and the innoculant showed only a very modest response. Most of the peas in the trial seemed to develop nodules just fine.

I wouldn’t worry too much about it. If it was Nodulator duo, then call your retailer. Heard of a few problems with it this year.

Had a similar issue last year with a clump sitting right above the auger on a Bourgault tank . Seeded 120 worked good the last 40 acres got no inoculant and mark spot in field and never noticed a difference . Roots looked the same and yield was the Same.

It is not a waste of time. In growing peas for 20 or more years, we have had lots of screw ups and it is very noticeable. Especially if you don't put down N or have low residual N., Nodulating peas will be a dark rich green compared to non-nodulating. In fact, we are now double inoculating to try to increase the protein for the new plant protein market. It is one of the few inputs that more than pays for itself IMO.
