3. Application Rate/T Seed Comments Mix 2L / T NutriSeed ® Legume Part A with 2L / T NutriSeed ® Legume Part B and 2L / T NutriSeed ® Legume Part C Ensure seed is evenly coated or dusting may result. Rates may vary depending on seed moisture and ambient temperature. Inoculant compatibility: It is important that NutriSeed ® Legume and chickpea inoculant is not mixed together. The application of NutriSeed ® Legume with chickpea is best done at the same time as application of either P Pickle T, Thiraflo or Apron. Chickpea inoculant can be applied once the seed has dried after application with the fungicide/fertiliser combination.

NOTE: The suggested rates of application are designed for typical Australian conditions and such should be used as a guide only. Each farmer’s climatic, water quality, soil types, application processes and practices may differ and therefore necessitate corrections to ensure optimum results. Clarification can be referred to your nearest Agrichem representative.

Based on $500/T on-farm pricing (common for 2012 chickpea crops), $100/T product costs and 50 kg/ha planting rate, the economic responses are summarised in table 1.

Nodulation tests performed by various inoculant suppliers have been done “in vitro” rather than “in-situ” so no field validation has occurred. As part of the trial process performed by Agrichem in the 2012 winter, nodulation counts were performed on two out of the three trials. The results are summarised in table 2. It is clear from these trials that NutriSeed ® Legume, when applied separately to the inoculant had no deleterious effect on nodulation in chickpeas. Table 2 Trial Location Treatment Average Number of Nodules / plant (+/- standard error) Meandarra NutriSeed ® 29.7 (+/- 3.0) Control 19.6 (+/- 8.1) Weemalah NutriSeed ® 20.0 (+/- 3.9) Control 13.8 (+/- 2.1) Field Trials In the 2012 chickpea season, Agrichem and their trial parnters undertook trials across the Western Darling Downs and Weemalah areas to see if there were responses to the product. Yields were affected by weather (low rainfall) in some locations. Where in-crop rainfall was around average (Bill-a Billa site) and overall crop nutrition was adequate, crop response to the treatment was significant.

1. NutriSeed ® Legume for Chickpeas Agrichem is proud to offer the Chickpea industry NutriSeed ® Legume as a nutritional seed dressing for the 2013 planting season. This product will be available either from resellers for on-farm treatment, or via commercial seed sheds for application along with other fungicides as a one-pass application. Benefits of NutriSeed ® Legume: 1. Penetration of micronutrients and activators through the seed coat upon imbibition triggers seed hormonal activity. 2. High hormonal activity improves hook formation in dicots, thus reducing mechanical impedance of the soil so that shoots can be thrown out, improving emergence. 3. Optimal placement of micronutrients to avoid soil interactions such as negative interactions of soil phosphate with trace elements. 4. Nutriseed is effective independent of soil types because of the optimal placement of nutrients on the seed. 5. Improved root system and seed metabolism. 6. More vigorous roots able to tap into the fertiliser band earlier to give better growth response and faster establishment which leads to higher yield potential. 7. Good root system exploits soil moisture and nutrients from a larger area thus reducing seedling water stress. 8. Sets the potential for higher yields. 9. NutriSeed ® nutrients help to reduce diseases such as Rhizoctonia root rot. 10. Economical and Easy to Use: Targeted nutrient delivery through seed treatment technology is the most efficient and cost effective method of delivering trace elements directly to an emerging plant. y iel d t h r o u gh in n o v a t i o n 1800 6 5 4 7 5 8 + 6 1 7 34 5 1 000 0 agr ic h e m . c om.a u F r e e Phon e W e b y iel d t h r o u gh in n o v a t i o n Benefits of Nutriseed Legume: 1) Penetration of micronutrients and activators through the seed c oat upon imbibition triggers seed hormonal activity. 2) High hormonal activity improves hook formation in dicots, thus reducing mechanical impedance of the soil so that shoots can be thrown out, improving germination. 3) Optimal placement of micronutrients to avoid soil interactions such as negative interactions of soil phosphate with trace elements. 4) Nutriseed is independent of soil types because of the optimal placement of nutrients on the seed. 5) Improved root system and seed metabolism. 6) More vigorous roots tap into the fertiliser band earlier to give better growth response and faster establishment which leads to higher yield potential. 7) Good root system exploits soil moisture and nutrients from a larger area thus reducing seedling water stress. 8) Sets the potential for higher yields. 9) Nutriseed nutrients help to reduce diseases such as Rhizoctonia root rot.
