Seed Coat Application Guide
PRODUCT MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Application equipment must be clean and free of previously used chemical residues before applying Anabolic Gro seed coat product.
Shake product well or agitate prior to use.
Mixing product with tank-mix partners: add the required water and add Anabolic Gro Seed Coat, Optional Binder, Optional Colorant and other tank mix-partners to the mix tank. Start and maintain constant mechanical and bypass agitation throughout the entire mixing and treating process.
Accurate calibration of the application equipment and frequent checks of this calibration are recommended to ensure proper seed coverage.
Uniform coating of the seed is necessary to insure proper efficacy.
Depending on the type of seed treating equipment, a small amount of water can be added to the product to facilitate product flow through the spray nozzles. Do not exceed five (5) fluid ounces of water per one gallon of Anabolic Gro Seed Coat.
Environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity could have an effect on handling, especially during the drying of seed just after treatment.
Caution and Disclaimer
CAUTION: Do not use with antimicrobial water conditioners, or water containing levels not approved under EPA human drinking water standards (TITLE 42 - THE PUBLIC HEALTH AND WELFARE). This includes, but is not limited to, Copper, Bleach, Fluoride, Chloramines, Chloride, Bacteriocides, Propiconazole (SlantTM, TiltTM), Phosphoric Acid, Sulfuric Acid. Effectiveness of Anabolic Gro Seed Coat products is adversely affected by storage methods that allow desiccation of living microbial inoculants. Seeds coated with Anabolic Gro Seed Coat should be applied and planted within 5 days to maintain maximum effectiveness. It is recommended that seed treated with Anabolic Gro Seed Coat Products are planted within 21 days of application to seed. Living Colonies of bacteria are reduced by 50% at day 10 after application to seed. Seed treated with Anabolic Gro Seed Coat must be stored between 50 degrees Fahrenheit and 85 degrees Fahrenheit with a minimum humidity of 55%. Do not allow inoculated seed to freeze. Hand application can be performed for small batch application using a “Cement” style mixer onsite. Follow recommended application rates and exercise “best judgment” based on perceived uniformity of coating on the seed to determine if the rate of application needs to be adjusted for your particular seed variety.
