AGTIV® PULSES

AGTIV® PULSES

AGTIV® PULSES is a peat-based, dual endomycorrhizal and rhizobial inoculant. Available in a granular formulation that can be used for precise in-furrow applications – or a powder formulation that is ideal for mixing with seeds at planting time.

GRANULAR

AGTIV® Pulses Granular is a Peat-based dual inoculant for in-furrow application for peas, lentils and faba beans. It contains Mycorrhizae & Rhizobium (the endomycorrhizal fungi Glomus intraradices and the bacteria Rhizobium leguminosarum bv viceae.)

Active Ingredients-Granular

  • Endomycorrhizal inoculum: Glomus intraradices- 142 viable spores/g; 64,500 viable spores/lb
  • Rhizobial inoculum: Rhizobium leguminosarum bv viceae- 1 x 108 viable cells/g; 4.5 x 1010 viable cells/lb

Storage and Handling

  • Store in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight
  • Do not freeze or expose to temperatures above 25°C (77°F)
  • Avoid severe temperature variation
  • Open package only when ready to use
  • Respect the best before date on the label
  • Do not blend with fertilizers

Application Rate-Granular

AGTIV® Pulses Granular should be placed in the seed row. Apply at a rate of 5 lb/acre (5.7 kg/ha).
One 18.2 kg bag of AGTIV® Pulses Granular covers 8 acres (3.2 ha) or one 364 kg (800 lb) bag covers 160 acres (64 ha).

     

  • We recommend calibrating the seeder before applying AGTIV® Pulses Granular.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® Pulses Granular with granular pesticides or fertilizers.
  • Flowability may be affected by conditions of high humidity.
  • To avoid flow problems, do not fill tank or seed cart completely. Regularly check and clean metering system to ensure proper flow.
  • Do not fill boxes or tanks until ready to plant.
  • Remove any unused granules from the tank or the seed cart at the end of the day.

POWDER

AGTIV® Pulses Powder is a Peat-based dual inoculant ideal for mixing with peas, lentils and faba beans seeds at planting time. It containsMycorrhizae & Rhizobium (the endomycorrhizal fungi Glomus intraradices and the bacteria Rhizobium leguminosarum bv viceae.)

Active Ingredients-Powder

  • Endomycorrhizal inoculum: Glomus intraradices- 2,750 viable spores/g; 1,248,500 viable spores/lb
  • Rhizobial inoculum: Rhizobium leguminosarum bv viceae- 1.6 x 109 viable cells/g; 7.3 x 1011 viable cells/lb

Storage and Handling

  • Store in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight
  • Do not freeze or expose to temperatures above 25°C (77°F)
  • Avoid severe temperature variation
  • Open package only when ready to use
  • Respect the best before date on the label

Application Rate-Powder

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 used 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Benefits

  • Rhizobium fixes Nitrogen in the nodules
  • Increases root growth
  • Mycorrhizal fungi produce hyphae that penetrate root cells to produce exchange structures
  • Mycorrhizal fungi produce hyphae that extend into the soil and increase absorptive capacity for water and mineral nutrients (P, Cu, Zn)
  • Mycorrhizal fungi improve the plant’s absorption capabilities by transferring directly to root via mycorrhizal network
  • Active rhizosphere: 5cm
  • Increases yield
  • Increases crop quality
  • Increases tolerance to drought
  • Optimizes fertilizer use
