When Rhizobium trifolii was inoculated into 13 seed pellet coating materials, a wide variation in survival of the organisms was found. Five of six adhesives examined supported rhizobia growth. A tenfold improvement in rhizobia survival was obtained on pelleted subterranean clover seeds when the rhizobia were suspended in peat rather than broth. Only one of seven pelleting treatments using a peat suspension of rhizobia in 40% gum arabic had adequate numbers after 8 days.
