"[WE] APPLY IT TO OUR CROP TO GET IT OFF TO A GOOD START"

BRAD’S EXPERIENCE WITH AGTIV® INOCULANT FOR GREEN PEAS

"Our local retailer brought the rep into our shop one day to talk about AGTIV®, and it was one of the few products that had the pea rhizobium in the inoculant, so we had a fit on our farm, and since we started trying it, we've used it every year and we use it on our soys and our lima beans, and our peas."

"When we started using AGTIV®, our main goal was to apply it to our crop to get it off to a good start. Our pea crop is a specialty crop in our area, and it pays well, but it takes a lot of management and we wanted the product, just as a piece of our inputs, to help grow a good crop. The pea crop for instance, it only has a 60-day cycle, and we need the plant to be healthy for those 60 days, and AGTIV® quite often makes for better nutrient uptake and healthier plants which produce more peas.

Premier Tech and their AGTIV® product have helped our crops do well in dryer years and specifically some of our specialty crops like the peas and the lima beans. They seem to do better with the increased root mass and helps absorb the nutrients better, and you can see it in the fields […]."

"When the plants are doing well, you know that AGTIV® is helping."
