A significant part of the livestock feed in Siberia is obtained from yellow melilot (Melilotus officinalis Pall.) – a perennial legume crop. In addition to its nutritional benefits, melilot is valuable as a source of biological nitrogen in soil and has phytosanitary qualities. To increase the productivity of the crop with considerate consumption of moisture resources, it was proposed to use inoculation of melilot seeds with the nodule bacteria compound – “Rizotorfin”. It was proved in a field experiment that the “Rizotorfin” treatment of melilot seeds contributes to a more reasonable expenditure of soil moisture, the evapotranspiration coefficient characterizing the average moisture consumption per 1 ton of crop’s green mass is reduced by 0.7 relative to the control variant plants. The root system develops better, the morphometric parameters of the experimental plants are 25-31% higher than those of plants not treated with “Rizotorfin”. The green mass yield of the experimental plants is 28-33% higher than in the control variant.
