AGTIV® SOYBEAN

AGTIV® SOYBEAN

AGTIV® Soybean 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® Soybean Granular is a dual inoculant in granular form used for precise in-furrow application. It contains the endomycorrhizal fungi Glomus intraradices and the bacteria Bradyrhizobium japonicum.

Active Ingredients-Granular

  • Endomycorrhizal inoculum: Glomus intraradices- 142 viable spores/g; 64,500 viable spores/lb
  • Rhizobial inoculum: Bradyrhizobium japonicum- 1.5 x 108 viable cells/g; 6.7 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

Application Rate-Granular

AGTIV® Soybean 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® Soybean 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® Soybean Granular.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® Soybean 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® Soybean Powder is a peat based dual inoculant ideal for mixing with soybean seeds at planting time. It contains the endomycorrhizal fungi Glomus intraradices and the bacteria Bradyrhizobium japonicum.

Active Ingredients-Powder

  • Endomycorrhizal inoculum: Glomus intraradices- 2,750 viable spores/g; 1,248,500 viable spores/lb
  • Rhizobial inoculum: Bradyrhizobium japonicum- 2.5 x 109 viable cells/g; 1.1 x 1012 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® Soybean Powder covers 40 acres (16 ha) of seeds.
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. Apply at 300 g/ha (120 g or 4.2 oz/acre).

  • AGTIV® Soybean 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® Soybean Powder.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® Soybean Powder and fungicide seed treatments in the same tank. Apply to seed sequentially or once treatment is dry.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® Soybean Powder with granular fertilizers.

 

Slurry Application

One 4.7 kg pail of AGTIV® Soybean Powder covers 40 acres (16 ha) of seeds.
Pour one 4.7 kg pail in a clean container. Gradually add 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® Soybean 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® Soybean Powder.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® Soybean Powder and fungicide seed treatments in the same tank. Apply to seed sequentially or once treatment is dry.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® Soybean 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
