Yield Efficacy

Research shows that chickpea inoculants promote:

  • Greater plant vigour
  • Greater root biomass
  • More nitrogen-fixing nodules
  • Higher yield potential

How it Works

  • Nodulator CP SCG inoculant contains Bradyrhizobium sp. (Cicer), a natural microorganism that is beneficial to plants.
  • The rhizobia help to increase nodulation resulting in increased fixation of nitrogen for higher yield and protein potential.
  • This product is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 8 x 107 viable cells of Bradyrhizobium sp. (Cicer) per gram.

Application Tips

  • Avoid prolonged inhalation of dust. Use of a dust mask when handling is recommended.
  • Store granular inoculant in a cool (10° to 15°C, or 50° to 60°F) dry place and away from herbicides, pesticides and bulk fertilizers.
  • Store bags flat and keep off the floor (i.e. on a pallet) to avoid direct contact with cold, damp surfaces.
  • Use before the expiration date.
  • Apply granular inoculant directly to the furrow. This product must not be applied at a depth that is less than the planting depth of the seed.
  • Do not mix granular inoculant with granular herbicides or fertilizers during planting.

This granular inoculant contains living organisms and requires a relatively high moisture content compared to granular herbicides and insecticides. To optimize flow (especially under humid conditions) it is suggested to fill large compartments to no more than 50 percent capacity.

When to Apply

For optimal results granules should be applied directly below the seed, in furrow.

How Much to Apply

One bag contains 22.6 kg (50 lb) enough to treat 4.0 ha (10 ac).

Apply granules at a rate of 5.6 kg/ha (5.0 lb/ac). For equipment calibration purposes refer to the following table indicating row spacing versus application rate.

Row Spacing Application
18 cm (7 in) 9.9 g/100m (9.0 g/100 yards)
20 cm (8 in) 11.2 g/100m (10.2 g/100 yards)
23 cm (9 in) 12.9 g/100m (11.8 g/100 yards)
25 cm (10 in) 14 g/100m (12.8 g/100 yards)
28 cm (11 in) 15.6 g/100m (14.3 g/100 yards)
30 cm (12 in) 16.8 g/100m (15.4 g/100 yards)
36 cm (14 in) 16.8 g/100m (15.4 g/100 yards)
41 cm (16 in) 22.9 g/100m (20.9 g/100 yards)

Equipment Calibration

Hard core granular inoculant is similar in particle size to some herbicide granules with a mean particle size distribution between 0.6 and 1.7 mm (92%), when submitted to standard Tyler Mesh particle size calibration, and a bulk density of 0.94 grams per cubic centimetre (56 pounds per cubic foot).

Directions for use
  • Apply granular inoculant directly to the furrow at a rate specified for row spacing.
  • Product must not be applied at a depth that is less than the planting depth of the seed.
