Crop rotation with legumes - video
Access Agriculture Training Video
Legumes are important in crop rotations, because they reduce weeds and enrich the soil by partnering with nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the soil. To be sure your soil has the right bacteria, you can buy an inoculant of Rhizobium bacteria. Rhizobium bacteria can survive several years in your soil, so you do not need to inoculate your legume crop every time.
