Pulse Seed Coating Mix

Pulse Seed Coating Mix is designed to maximise rhizobia bacteria colonisation onto the roots of pulse crops. Field experiments demonstrate that increasing the rhizobia survival can lead to rapid root growth and development during plant germination. Enhancing rhizobia colonisation with Pulse Seed Coating Mix has been shown to increase yield and significantly increase deep nitrogen (N) reserves as a direct result of the increased colonies fixing more N from the soil, which can have added benefits on the following year’s crop.

Features

  • Can be applied during seed cleaning and treating
  • Two formulations specific to acidic or alkaline soil types
  • Compatible with inoculants and common pulse crop fungicides*

 

Benefits

  • Improved root nodulation on plants grown from treated seed
  • Increased plant vegetative growth and yield potential
  • Higher nitrogen fixation

 

Other

Application rate: 5L per tonne of seed
Specific Gravity: 1.07
pH: 6.0 – 8.0
Colour: Dark brown liquid
*Compatibility: While compatible with inoculants and common pulse crop fungicides, it is known to be physically incompatible with P-Pickle T
Storage: Shake well before use. Store out of direct sunlight in a cool environment
Contains: Concentrated biochemistry with beneficial enzymes, proteins and organic acids; Zinc and manganese, which are critical to early planty growth; Liquid kelp extract as a source of alginate to enhance rhizobia during the seeding phase; Molybdenum to maximise nitrogen fixation

Preparation: It is important for drums to be vigorously shaken & product stirred prior to application as settling of kelp alginates can sometimes occur
