LegumiN and Fabian von Beesten

Specialist for legume seed inoculation and biological N-Fixation

Since my agricultural training and studies I have been interested in the details of cultivating soya, chickpeas, lupins, etc. I believe that legumes must once again take a prominent place in our crop rotations. In my experience, one of the keys to success lies in the love for the details of cultivation.

From 2011 to 2017, I oversaw the organic soya contract farming for Taifun-Tofu GmbH, where I was involved in everything related to the cultivation and seed multiplication of the soya bean. During several journeys in Europe and in the worlds main soya growing regions I could gather experience and later make various videos and publications about soya cultivation.

It is often small details that make the difference. This is very much true also in legume production.

Later I specialised in the "niche" subject legume seed inoculation and rhizobial N-fixation. It did not make sense to me that there were still soo many failures with this rather simple detail of legume production. Also I had seen that the same products are mostly half price in the main growing regions, compared to Europe. A partner in Canada recommended Legume Technology from England to me, who have since become an invaluable partner for reliable inoculant supply.
In 2017, I started my own business offering inoculants and expert advice for legume producers. Besides that I started trading high quality organic edamame seed under the name Gartensoja.
