Three years ago International Ag Labs discontinued a very effective microbial product used planting. The mix of microbes used in our product was no longer available. As a result we substituted Z-Hume into the starter program. As a liquid inoculant Z-Hume worked well even though its primary purpose was in residue digestion in the fall. After 3 years of careful research are pleased to offer X-Hume as our preferred starter inoculant. Due to its ease of use Hume is packaged in the same liquid carrier as Z-Hume. Because of widespread use of pesticides and herbicides we wanted a bacterial package that could not only promote a healthy rhizosphere but also detoxify pesticide residues. We found that in the pseudomonas bacteria species heavily favored in the X-Hume inoculant.
