Analysis (10% Ca)

What Is It?

  • Seed dressing for application onto pulse seed (peas, lentils, chickpeas, … ).
  • Calcium-based seed dressing.
  • Rhizobia-friendly formulation.
  • 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?

  • When seeding into wet and cold conditions or when the top soil is dry.
  • Low pH soils, heavy manure land, soils with high Nitrogen levels.
  • Sandy and light-textured soils.
  • Heavy textured soil with high Mg content.

What To Expect?

  • Early emergence and a better stand.
  • Extensive root growth.
  • Better nodulation.
  • Better Nitrogen use efficiency and preservation of yield.

Application Guidelines

  • Pulse crops: 3 mL/Kg of seed.
  • Pulse Primer can be used alone or in combination with seed treatments, dry and liquid inoculants. Check the best option for your targeted combination (see compatibility charts).
