Abstract Preinoculation of P. vulgaris cv. Contender seeds with Rhizobium phaseoli was carried out by incorporating the inoculum into a mixture of vermiculite and compost or wheat bran, which was applied to seeds to produce a solid pellet. The preinoculated pelleted seed contained sufficient bacteria per seed for effective nodulation after 56 d storage at 25 deg C. These results were not achieved using a liquid inoculum of Rhizobium.
