Active PLS™

Active PLS

Active PLS is a legume nutritional seed treatment.  With it's new formulation offering a higher nutrient load and  better balanced pH, it optimizes synergy with the roots and rhizobial inoculants, maximizing the Biological Nitrogen Fixation (BNF).  Active PLSsupplies seeds with the macronutrients and trace elements required to improve germination and early growth, leading to stronger plants with higher yields.

How it Works

Active PLS is a premium seed nutritional coating that supplies seeds with the micronutrients and trace elements needed to improve germination, early growth and the efficiency of  Biological Nitrogen Fixation (BNF)

Why to Use

Active PLS is a seed nutrient treatment that provides nutrients to both the germinating seed and Rhizobial inoculants.

When to Use

Prior to seeding soybeans, faba beans, peas, lentils, chickpeas and other beans.

How to Use

Active PLS™ has a flexible formula which can be mixed either simultaneously or sequentially with rhizobial inoculants and compatible agrochemicals

Application Rate


Active PLS: 2ml / kg of seeds

Single application: If using Active PLS without additional agrochemicals, dilute with water (1:1 ratio) to ensure uniform coverage of seeds.

Simultaneous application as two (or three) separate products:

  • Direct/stream both Active PLS and agchem/rhizobial inoculant in the required amounts towards the seeds.
  • Allow treated seeds to air dry for 5-10 min before seeding.

Sequential Application:

  • Sequence of addition: Seed, Active PLS, agchem, rhizobial inoculant.
  • First treat the seeds with required amount of Active PLS and mix well for uniform coverage.
  • Soon after application of Active PLS, apply the required amount of agchem/rhizobial inoculant and mix well for uniform coverage. Allow treated seeds to air dry for 5-10 min before seeding.

A coloring additive allows a visual check to ensure all seeds are uniformly coated. Application rates exceeding recommended rates can negatively affect seed germination. Always follow label directions. For optimal performance, plant seeds as soon as possible after inoculation and no later than two weeks after treatment. Do not expose treated seeds to high temperatures, or direct sunlight. In hot dry field conditions, light irrigation after planting can help lower potential damage to the inoculant.




Provides a superior nutrient composition and is an economical option to support legume seed germination, vigorous early growth, and rhizobial bacterial growth


Has a pH ideally balanced to promote rhizobacterial growth on legumes and fosters better communication between the root and the inoculant


Maintains the ability to simultaneously upregulate desirable pathways and down regulate undesirable pathways, allowing for plants to maximize their genetic potential under cold, wet or drought conditions


Contains the necessary nutrients to support germination, vigorous early growth, and Rhizobial bacterial growth


Contains patented technology designed to enhance seed germination, root growth, seedling vigor, environmental stress resistance, and yield.


Active PLS can be mixed either simultaneously or sequentially with rhizobial inoculant/compatible agchems.





Compatible with other rhizobial inoculants, and Cruiser Maxx™ Vibrance™ Beans Seed Treatment. As inoculants are living organisms and can be harmed by some agricultural chemicals, check with your dealer/manufacturer before using any other chemical seed treatments with Active PLS / inoculant combinations.
