We assessed the effectiveness of three locally made lignite, subbituminous coal and cowmanure-based cowpea Bradyrhizobium inoculants in comparison with a peat-based imported Bradyrhizobium incoculant in a two-field plot investigation. The local inoculants were prepared by incorporating three rhizobia strains (Ife CR9, Ife CR15 and Bradyrhizobium japonicum) into each of the above carrier materials and were used to inoculate three cowpea seed varieties: TVU 1190, IT 82E-60 and Ife brown.
