Directions for use

Application

Mix AGTIV® FORAGES • Powder evenly with seeds at a rate of 725 ml of product/hectare (1 ¼ cup/acre). One 1.6 kg pail of product covers up to 8 ha (20 acres).

It is possible to use a dry seed treater to deliver the powder (see below for details).

The product is compatible with legume inoculants.

Recommendations

  • AGTIV® FORAGES • Powder may "bulk up" seeds. It is important to calibrate the seeder to ensure correct seeding rate is attained.

  • When planting, avoid using AGTIV® FORAGES • Powder with wet equipment. Allow the equipment to dry and make sure that all the mechanisms and the piping of the seeder are dry. It is also possible to use a neutral absorbent to absorb excess water.

  • For optimum results, it is recommended to seed within 8 hours following coating with AGTIV® FORAGES • Powder. Ensure proper seed-soil contact to minimize any desiccation of the mycorrhizal inoculant.

  • Do not mix with granular or liquid fertilizers.

  • Do not mix AGTIV® FORAGES • Powder and fungicide seed treatments in the same tank. Apply to seed once treatment is dry.

 

Dry seed treaters
A dry seed treater can be used to easily deliver AGTIV® FORAGES • Powder onto seeds. It is recommended to perform a calibration test with the device to adjust the flow rate to the drill box filling rate.
