Application Tips

Agitate thoroughly prior to use.

Apply using standard slurry, gravity flow or mist-type seed treatment application equipment.

When used at the recommended rate of 300 ml/100 kg of seed, no additional dyes or dilutions with water are needed unless recommended by the manufacturer of the seed treatment application equipment.

If recommended by the manufacturer of the seed treatment application equipment, increase the use rate proportionally to the dilution rate (e.g. add 100 ml of water to 300 ml of Insure Cereal FX4, then apply at 400 mL/100 kg seed). BASF supports the addition of water to Insure Cereal FX4 to a maximum volume of 600 ml (300 ml additional water per 100 kg).

Thorough seed coverage offers the best protection from seed-borne, soil-borne and seedling diseases.

Do not use treated seed for food, feed or oil production.

Insure Cereal FX4 contains sufficient pigment to conspicuously colour and coat treated seed. Regulations pertaining to the colouration of treated seed enforced under the “Seeds Act” must be strictly adhered to when using Insure Cereal FX4.

Please consult the seed treatment application equipment manufacturer in question for further directions.

FAQ

The colour from an Insure seed treatment has stained my equipment. What can I use to remove the stains?

BASF strictly adheres to regulations pertaining to the colouration of treated seed, enforced under the “Seeds Act”. Therefore, Insure Seed Treatments contain sufficient pigment to visibly colour and coat the seed. This can stain truck boxes blue or red. MS Schippers Foam or Enviro Clean can be used to help remove stains from the surface of equipment dyed by Insure seed treatments.

Can I dilute Insure brand seed treatments with water?

If desired, based on treating conditions, applicators can dilute Insure brand seed treatments with water. Increase the use rate proportionally to the dilution rate (E.g. 100 ml water + 300 ml Insure® Cereal FX4 = 400 ml/100 kg seed). BASF supports the addition of water to Insure Cereal FX4 to a maximum volume of 600 ml (300 ml additional water per 100 kg).

How long does seed treated with an Insure seed treatment stay good? How far in advance can I treat seed with an Insure seed treatment?

Seed treated with Insure seed treatments can be stored for up to one year without impacting seed germination and viability. Beyond one year, seed should be re-treated to maintain product efficacy

Where can I find information on properly calibrating my seed treating equipment with Insure brand seed treatments?

Calibration documents for A4, G3 and G40 treating systems can all be found on the website product pages for each Insure brand seed treatment.

Where can I find information on application rate by crop for Insure brand seed treatments?

Treatment rate is based on total weight, not the number of bushels of seed or bushel weight. Each Insure brand technology sheet provides details on application rates for all labeled crops by pack size.
