In issue 75 of EDN, we included an article about Sesbania rostrata. We mentioned in that article some confusion about whether or not the same inoculant could be used for the root and stem of S. rostrata. Craig Elevitch with AgroForester Tropical Seeds recently sent us an e-mail on the topic. He had just gotten a response from a University of Hawaii scientist, saying that almost all Sesbania inoculant is capable of forming both stem and root nodules in S. rostrata.
