Yield Efficacy

  • In 12 head-to-head field-scale trials in peas, conducted by independent co-operators in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Nodulator XL won 92% of the time, out-yielding our competitor’s product by an average of 1.6 bu/ac or 3.25%.
  • Small plot trials show even higher yield increases in lentils.

How it Works

  • Nodulator XL inoculant contains Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viceae, a highly efficient, more active strain of rhizobium, selected to perform on pea and lentil crops for increased yield potential.
  • The rhizobia help to maximize nodulation resulting in increased fixation of nitrogen for higher yield and protein potential.
  • The convenient liquid formulation provides a reliable inoculant that is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 750 million rhizobia per gram.

Application Tips

  • Inoculated seed should be planted within six hours after application.
  • Increased volume of inoculant per bushel of seed is advantageous. Under adverse or stress planting conditions (hot, dry field conditions), an increased inoculant application rate is suggested.

When to Apply

For optimal results apply Nodulator XL up to six hours before seeding.

How Much to Apply

One case treats approximately 300 bushels of seed.

Shake product well before application. Apply directly to the seed while augering (DO NOT run auger at greater than HALF capacity).

Flow Valve Setting Inoculant Flow Rate Seed/Auger Flow Rate
1 360 mL/min (12 fl. oz./min) 131 kg/min (289 (5) lbs (bu)/min)
2 860 mL/min (29 fl. oz./min) 313 kg/min (690 (11) lbs (bu)/min)
3 1340 mL/min (45 fl. oz./min) 487 kg/min (1074 (18) lbs (bu)/min)
4 1660 mL/min (56 fl. oz./min) 604 kg/min (1332 (22) lbs (bu)/min)
5 1780 mL/min (60 fl. oz./min) 647 kg/min (1426 (24) lbs (bu)/min)
6 2030 mL/min (68 fl. oz./min) 738 kg/min (1627 (30) lbs (bu)/min)

Directions for use

  1. Shake 7.5 L bladder well before using for a minimum of 30 seconds
  2. Replace bladder lid with hose kit.
  3. Invert bladder above treatment area so the end of the hose is just above the seed (for accurate application rates, ensure hose is straight when dispensing inoculant).
  4. Adjust flow valve to regulate the recommended application rate (see table below).
  5. To ensure adequate mixing of seed and inoculant do not run auger at greater than HALF capacity.
  6. Assess the application rate several times during inoculation to ensure correct target flow rate.
  7. Product formulated to be applied directly to seed.
