NodulaidTM can be applied pre-sowing using the traditional slurry coating method whilst augering seed into the drill. NodulaidTM may also be applied by water injection in-furrow using a liquid injection rig. Seed treatment with NodulaidTM ensures on-seed inoculation with powerful nitrogen fixing rhizobia bacteria allowing crops and pastures to attain optimal yield and quality. NodulaidTM maximizes nitrogen fixation for field crops and pastures: • Australian Made under certified ISO9001 quality standards • Research and farm proven - latest most host compatible commercial strains • Potent NodulaidTM host specific rhizobia strain competes effectively with resident soil microbes for: greater plant root colonisation, nodulation and nitrogen fixing activity. • Recommended for legume pastures and pulse crops including Lupins, Field peas, Chick peas, Faba beans, Lucerne, Medics,Annual clovers, Subclover,White clover and others • Low cost, easy application methods • Sterile peat based medium - high bacterial loading • Mixes readily with water to form an easy to apply slurry or remain suspended in a tank mix NodulatorTM is a powerful clay based inoculant granule ready-to-sow with seed. NodulatorTM is sown through the drill for effective in-furrow legume and pulse crop inoculation. NodulatorTM ensures germinating seedling roots are in close proximity to potent rhizobia for successful nodulation. NodulatorTM is recommended to be sown with legume and pulse seed through the seeder for fast, timely, hassle-free inoculation. NodulatorTM ensures effective nodulation: • Prolonged inoculant life allows early sowing ahead of rain • No need to inoculate and sow seed just-in-time • No mess, No urgency, No wasted time, ready-to-sow when you are • Clay based rhizobium impregnated granule • Uniform, free flowing dust free granule • Guaranteed high rhizobia loading - Low sowing rate (6kg/ha) • Formulation for Lupins, Faba beans, Fieldpeas, Chickpeas and other legume crops When is inoculation vital? Inoculation with either NodulaidTM or NodulatorTM is always recommended when sowing legumes and pulses due to their proven effectiveness for increasing yield. It is considered vital when sowing into soils that: • Are low in organic matter • Following extended dry periods or drought • Have low or high pH • Soils that are cultivated annually • Have a history of use of pesticides or fungicides • Have been waterlogged or previously flooded • Are cold and wet Used with permission from Iowa State University Extension publication Soybean Growth and Development (PM 1945) Potent legume seed inoculants used as seed slurry or water injection in-furrow Potent granular inoculants for sowing in-furrow with seed FREECALL: 1800 558 399 for more information and our product guide visit: www.beckerunderwood.com.au Healthy effective rhizobia nodules are bright pink to red inside when cut away as shown here ‘Nodulator has given us the ability to dry sow with the confidence of having a great nodulation once the season breaks. Now we can get the chickpeas sown ‘off-peak’ and concentrate on sowing cereals and oilseeds when conditions are most ideal. ‘Another bonus of Nodulator is its simplicity, meaning it reduces labour required at sowing time as there is no laborious task of handling, inoculating and drying chickpea seed immediately prior to sowing’. Jonathan Drady - ‘Ellendale’, Bedgerebong, NSW ‘Nodulaid was banded by water injection below the seed for our lupin program. It was simply mixed in the tank and injected through the tine nozzles.We missed injecting on the first lap and later when we checked there was a heck of a difference. ‘Where we banded with Nodulaid, the lupin nodules were bright pink inside indicating they were fixing a lot more nitrogen compared to where we missed out. Nodulaid cost us $4/ha and it was a simple exercise.’ James Couper - ‘Emohruo’,Three Springs,WA NATIONAL SALES MANAGER Dale Skepper 0407 880 521 firstname.lastname@example.org REGION - NSW & QLD Daniel Zinga 0407 880 472 email@example.com REGION - VIC,TAS, SA Phillip Badgery 0407 880 746 firstname.lastname@example.org REGION - WA David Clegg 0408 630 641 email@example.com Legume and pulse seed inoculation is essential for field crops to achieve maximum yield potential. By not inoculating, seedlings may nodulate poorly or not at all, starving the crop of nitrogen needed for growth. Becker Underwood has been at the forefront of global commercial rhizobium inoculant science for the past 25 years.The company produces high potency inoculants Australian Made under certified ISO9001 quality standards for Australia’s farmers. NodulaidTM and NodulatorTM are two, easy to use, high potency legume inoculants. Both products have a high loading of active rhizobia bacteria that compete effectively with resident soil microbes.These introduced rhizobia are highly compatible with the host plant and are efficient at fixing atmospheric nitrogen. By inoculating with NodulaidTM or NodulatorTM, field crops have greater opportunity for plant root colonisation and nodulation by potent rhizobia bacteria. The outcome is greater nitrogen fixation for higher protein and grain yields. NodulaidTM and NodulatorTM - high potency rhizobia inoculants by Becker Underwood. High potency rhizobia inoculants for legume and pulse crops High potency rhiz obia inocula nts for leg ume a nd puls e c rops TM Application tips Pre-mix NodulaidTM into a slurry or place into a porous bag (e.g. Hessian or Muslin bag). This prevents NodulaidTM from settling on the bottom of the tank. Pour slurry into the tank or attach bag to tank lid while filling tank with chlorine-free water. Keep well agitated while seeding. Ensure that filters are 80 mesh (0.18mm) or coarser.
