Tips & Tricks

Treat your seeds right

There are a lot of factors that go into making sure you get the most out of your seed treatment. How full is your auger? How warm or how cold are your seeds? This video takes the guess work out of all that so you can avoid costly mistakes and make sure you're always covered.

  • Designed for commercial application and on-farming treating with conventional seed-treating equipment
  • Accurate application rates and uniform distribution are fundamental to top performance – mix seed and seed treatment quickly and uniformly
  • Raxil has a freezing point of -16°C and its viscosity does not change until it freezes. If the product does freeze, thaw to 5°C to 10°C and mix thoroughly
  • Refer to the label and instructions supplied with treating systems for complete information on proper application techniques
  • Allow adequate time for the seed treatment to dry on the seed
  • Always wear personal protective equipment when handling seed treatments or treated seed
  • Always calibrate seeding equipment with treated seed, as seed flow can be affected
  • Always ensure proper mixing. Although not needed, conditions sometimes warrant additional water. Water added to Raxil can help increase coverage of the seed. A 3:1 product to water ratio is the maximum you would need. This can help when applying to barley and under cold temperatures to help facilitate proper seed coverage
