RHIZO-ID can provide you with the feedback you need to improve your legume performance.
YIELD INCREASE ► PROFIT INCREASE
Improved performance of your legume crops and pastures will increase both your yield and profit.
And with a high performing pasture, your livestock will get to market quicker and have an increased meat fat score, allowing you to get a better price at the market.
FERTILIZER DECREASE ► COST REDUCTION
With legumes, you have the fertiliser ready when your crop needs it the most without spending money. A good performing pasture can give you on average 200 kg of Nitrogen per hectare, increase the grain quality of your subsequent crop and save you $$ in fertiliser application.
With the power of science and our easy to use RHIZO-ID kits, we can identify what type of rhizobia is in your legume root nodules to improve production.
1 kit is sufficient for the analysis of one legume species.
Each kit contains four sample bags.
Simply send in roots from four different locations in a 100-hectare paddock and we will begin the analysis.
Our scientific-led research team use a mass spectrometer machine and genetic sequencing of protein markers to detect and identify the different strains and their unique fingerprints.
We generate a fingerprint of root nodules and then we compare that fingerprint with the database that we have comprised of the current rhizobia inoculants.
