Active Ingredients

  • Endomycorrhizal inoculum: Glomus intraradices - 142 viable spores/g; 64 500 viable spores/lb
  • Rhizobial inoculum: Mesorhizobium ciceri - 1.3 x 108 viable cells/g; 5.9 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

AGTIV® Chickpea 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® Chickpea 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® Chickpea Granular.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® Chickpea 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® CHICKPEA Powder is a peat based dual inoculant ideal for mixing with chickpea seeds at planting time. It contains the endomycorrhizal fungi Glomus intraradices, developed with PTB297 technology, and the bacteria Mesorhizobium ciceri.

 

Active Ingredients

  • Endomycorrhizal inoculum: Glomus intraradices - 2 750 viable spores/g
  • Rhizobial inoculum: Mesorhizobium ciceri - 7.0 x 108 viable cells/g

 

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

 

Dry Application

One 4.7 kg pail of AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder covers 16 ha (40 acres) of seeds.

Mix AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder evenly with seeds when filling seeder using grain auger or directly in the hopper or other container.

Recommendations

  • For optimum results, it is recommended to seed within the 4 hours following coating with AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder.
  • AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder may “bulk up” seeds. It is recommended to calibrate the seeder to ensure correct
    seeding rate is attained.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder and fungicide seed treatments in the same tank. Apply to seed sequentially or once treatment is dry.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder with granular fertilizers.

Pesticide use: refer to the complete list of compatible pesticides.

Slurry Application

One 4.7 kg pail of AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder covers 16 ha (40 acres) of seeds.

Pour one pail of 4.7 kg of AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder in a clean container. Add gradually 8 - 10 litres (2 - 2.6 US gallons) 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.

Recommendations

  • For optimum results, it is recommended to seed within the 4 hours following coating with AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder.
  • AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder may “bulk up” seeds. It is recommended to calibrate the seeder to ensure correct
    seeding rate is attained.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder and fungicide seed treatments in the same tank. Apply to seed sequentially or once treatment is dry.
  • Do not mix AGTIV® CHICKPEA Powder with granular fertilizers.

Pesticide use: refer to the complete list of compatible pesticides.

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
