High-performance inoculant delivering outstanding value and yield boosts of 3% to 8% in peas and lentils.

  • A reliable self-adhering, peat-based inoculant that can be applied dry, slurried or damp at the time of seeding.
  • Built-in adhesive qualities make inoculation quick and simple.
  • Eliminates the need for commercial sticking agents.
  • Highly efficient and more active strain of rhizobia.

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 product provides a reliable inoculant that is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 1 billion rhizobia per gram.

Application Tips

  • Seed should be planted within 24 hours after application. If not sown within 24 hours, seed must be re-inoculated.
  • If seed is of low moisture content, it is recommended to use either slurry or damp application methods.
  • Can be used as a stand-alone on virgin sites and/or stressed soils.

When to Apply

For optimal results apply Nodulator XL Self-Adhering Sterile Peat within 4 to 6 hours of inoculation.

Seeds must be sown within 24 hours of inoculation.

How Much to Apply

One case contains 5 x 1.2 kg bags, enough to treat 110 bushels of seed.

Apply in a slurry or as a damp or dry inoculation.

Directions for use

  1. After opening pack, work gently between fingers to disperse contents. The addition of water at the time of application will optimize the activity of the integral sticker, resulting in even seed coverage with the inoculant.
  2. SLURRY APPLICATION: Add complete pack contents to approximately 2 litres (68 fl. oz.) of clean, dechlorinated water and stir well in a clean container to form a lump-free slurry. Do not allow slurry to settle out; pour onto the seed and mix thoroughly to ensure the seeds are evenly coated. Allow seed to dry before further handling.
  3. DAMP INOCULATION: Apply just enough water to slightly dampen seed (2 ml/kg – 1.5 fl. oz./50 lbs.). Mix the damp seed thoroughly with the inoculant so that they are evenly coated.
  4. DRY INOCULATION: Pour the correct amount of inoculant onto thin layers of seed in the drill hopper and mix thoroughly to evenly coat seed. For bulk seed handling systems, the inoculant can be metered directly onto augured seed.
