Directions for use

Peat-based Dry Formulations: The peat-based form of America's Best Inoculant® may be applied to seed using one of these three methods of application.

  1. Inoculating as you fill your planter.
    A proportional amount of inoculant can be manually or mechanically introduced to a flowing stream of seed and the process of the seed flowing will evenly disperse the inoculant on the seed.
  2. Sprinkle application.
    Moisten seed in planter box with 3 ounces of water per 50 lbs. of seed. (Sterile form does not require moistening of the seed.) Add one bag of America's Best Inoculant® non-sterile inoculant per 1500 lbs. of seed, or one bag of sterile inoculant per 2000 lbs. seed, and mix until seed is completely covered.

    (Please note: it is best to mix in 50 lb. increments.)

    For best performance, plant seed within 24 hours of application.
  3. Slurry application (outside of planter box).
    Place contents of one bag into 5.5 pints of clean, cool, non-chlorinated water. Mix thoroughly. Then mix thoroughly with 1500 lbs. of soybean seed.

    (Please note: it is best to mix in 50 lb. increments.)

    For best performance, plant seed within 24 hours of application.

Liquid Formulations: The liquid form of America's Best Inoculant® can be applied to seed using one of these three methods The liquid form can be applied and will not gel at temperatures above 40 degrees.

  2. Bulk and continuous application.
    Remove bag from box and attach applicator cap and tubing. Hang bag from loop on bag and apply to seed per instructions inside of box.
  3. In-furrow use.
    Only use America's Best Inoculant® in spray tanks that have been cleaned and are free of all chemical residue. Dilute America's Best Inoculant® in non-chlorinated water.

Precautions: Store treated seed in cool place, out of direct sunlight. Always use non-chlorinated water for pesticide dilutants when mixing with inoculants. Read and follow all label directions.

1 "Slurry" refers to co-mixing liquid inoculant together with the seed treatment in the treater tank. If possible avoid co-mixing liquid inoculant together with the pesticide seed treatment, use a separate tank for inoculant. The inoculant plus the named seed treatment should be kept together in the tank no longer than four hours before application to the seed.
