Directions for use

Dry application

One 4.7 kg pail of AGTIV® PULSES • Powder covers:
Peas & faba beans:
16 ha (40 acres)
Lentils: 24 ha (60 acres)

Mix evenly with seeds at the bottom of the grain auger while filling drill, or directly in the drill box. Ensure uniform seed coverage is obtained.
Peas & faba beans: apply at 300 g/ha (120 g or 4.2 oz/acre).
Lentils: apply at 200 g/ha (80 g or 2.8 oz/acre).

Dry seed treater

A dry seed treater can be use to easily deliver AGTIV® PULSES • 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.

Device tested:

Nuttall Seed Inoculator (Nuttall Mfg Ltd, 1-306-345-2359, www.nuttallsystem.com): 4 to 5 minutes is required to empty a 4,7 kg pail of AGTIV® PULSES • Powder set at maximum speed.

Recommendations

  • AGTIV® PULSES • Powder may "bulk up" seeds. It is recommended to calibrate the seeder to ensure correct seeding rate is attained. 
  • For optimum results, it is recommended to seed within the 4 hours following coating with AGTIV® PULSES • Powder. 
  • Do not mix AGTIV® PULSES • Powder and fungicide seed treatments in the same tank. Apply to seed sequentially or once treatment is dry. 
  • Do not mix AGTIV® PULSES • Powder with granular fertilizers.

Slurry application

One 4.7 kg pail of AGTIV® PULSES • Powder covers:
Peas & faba beans: 16 ha (40 acres)
Lentils: 24 ha (60 acres)

Pour one (1) pail of 4.7 kg of AGTIV® PULSES • Powder in a clean container. Add gradually 8 - 10 litres of clean, non-chlorinated water and stir well. Add more water if the slurry is too thick. Pour onto the seeds and mix thoroughly to ensure even coating.
