Product Highlights

  • Brings the trusted performance of the #1 selling cereal seed treatment brand in Western Canada1 in an easy to use, all-in-one package
  • Raxil PRO SHIELD all-in-one maintains the market leading formulation of Raxil PRO but with enhanced coverage, a deeper red colour, minimal dust-off and buildup, and makes treating in cool conditions easier
  • Available in a 10 L jug (113 bushels of wheat) and a NEW 125 L (1,415 bushels of wheat) bottom-drain drum
  • Helps ensure uniformity in your fields, which makes timing a herbicide or fungicide application easier
  • Raxil PRO SHIELD offers both contact and systemic protection from seed, seedling and soil-borne diseases. Once seed is in the ground and disease starts to attack, there’s nothing that can be done to prevent that crop loss.
  • Higher performing root systems
  • Improved vigour
  • Robust growth and increased yield potential
  • Wireworm protection: Through ingestion and/or contact, the active ingredient in Stress Shield (imidacloprid) prevents wireworms from feeding on cereal crops
  • Helps the crop cope with unforeseen seasonal stresses

Please note that the number of bushels treated will vary depending on the density of the seed. Calculations for the amount treated are based on wheat = 60 lbs./bushel, barley = 48 lbs./bushel, oats = 34 lbs./bushel. Always calculate seed density before treating seed and for best results, treat seed based on actual seed weight.

Mixing Instructions and Tote Configuration

Illustration of mixing instructions and tote configuration.

    Designed for maximum coverage, this 140 L drum containing 125 L of Raxil PRO SHIELD is fully compatible with your existing mixing equipment.

    Before use, all wire holding caps can be cut for easy access (seed treatment containers only).

A: Mixer/vent

Bung A is for agitation of Raxil PRO SHIELD before product use, but only if pump recirculation is not an option.

To mix: remove only the middle portion of Bung A. Attach the mixing drill bit found attached to the top of the drum to a standard electric drill (not an impact drill). Engage the drill-mounted bit to the square shaft of the mixer. Mix at 450-500 rpm for one minute. Do not apply pressure.

*Caution: Higher speeds or mixing too long may weaken the integrity of the mixer and product.
