Promoting Faster Emergence & Root Development

Analysis (0-22-3 with 6.7% Zn)

What Is It?

  • Seed dressing for application onto cereals and oilseed prior to seeding.
  • Unique formulation with high concentrations of Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.
  • The Gel Rheology Technology™ keeps the highly concentrated product suspended and helps with seed adhesion and drying out.
  • The product is available in 10L jugs, 450L and 1000L IBC’s.

When & Why Use It?

  • Cold and wet conditions and when seeding into a dry soil.
  • High pH soils, heavy manure land, soils with high organic matter.
  • Sandy and light-textured soils.
  • Western Canadian soils are Zinc deficient and the harvested grain from these soils is low on Zinc.
  • Zinc is required for energy production and protein synthesis.
  • Phosphorus and Zinc are key drivers for an optimum germination and vigor.
  • Zinc aids in the prevention of maturity delays.

What To Expect?

  • Quick emergence and establishment of the seedlings.
  • Good root development and biomass.
  • Advanced days to maturity.

Application Guidelines

  • Cereals: 3 mL/Kg of seed; 122 bu per 10 L jug; 410 L per 5000 bushel bin.
  • Oilseeds: 6 mL/Kg of seed or 73 × 50 lbs bags per 10 L jug.
  • Primer Zn should not be used with Rhizobia on pulses.
  • Primer Zn can be applied onto the seed in combination with other seed treatments. Check the best option for your targeted combination (see compatibility charts).
  • If required, Primer Zn can be diluted with water for a more uniform coverage onto the seed.
  • It is highly recommended to wash the seed treatment equipment after using the product.
