Legumes Seed

Legumes are a farmers best friend. This group of plants belongs to the pea family, which include beans, vetch, clover, alfalfa and more. Legumes add a large amount of nitrogen to the soil through Rhizobia bacteria. Planting legumes between cash crops helps increase soil health, reduce fertilizer costs, and increases yields. An extra benefit is that they can be used as a cover crop for erosion control, addition of organic matter to the soil, and moisture conservation.
