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.
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.
