Primer Canola

Balanced Nutrition for Germinating Canola


What is It?

  • Seed dressing for application onto canola and mustard seed prior to seeding.
  • Unique formulation with high concentrations of Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc as well as other essential micronutrients.
  • The Gel Rheology Technology™ keeps the highly concentrated product suspended and helps with seed adhesion and drying out.
  • The product is available in cases of 2 × 10L jugs, 450L and 1000L IBC’s.

When & Why Use It?

  • Improves early-season establishment of canola in cold and wet soil conditions.
  • Provides readily available Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc and other micronutrients that are limited by the cold and wet conditions.
  • The earlier emergence allows canola seedlings to outcompete weeds.

What to Expect?

  • Primer Canola reduces the risk of a poor stand and the need to re-seed.
  • Canola treated with Primer Canola cabbages out and bolts quicker, resulting in an earlier flowering to beat the summer heat.
  • Primer Canola contributes to advanced maturity, earlier dry down and better management of the harvest operation.

Size Options



Application Guidelines

  • Canola: 6 mL/Kg of seed or 73 × 50lbs bags per 10L jug.
  • Primer Canola can be used alone or in combination with other pesticides or biological seed treatments.
  • Primer Canola can be diluted with water for a more uniform coverage onto the seed.
  • When diluted with water the dry down is faster.
  • It is highly recommended to wash the seed treatment equipment with water after using the product.
