Application Tips

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

  • Mix/agitate the product well before applying.
  • Be cautious of weather and temperature of seed and seed treatment while treating. Keep seed treatment in a warm storage area and avoid treating seed that is colder than 0°C.
  • Find the right flow rate to avoid plugging. Dont start treating with the seed treater running at 100% capacity.
  • If seed is dry, it can cause issues such as cracked hulls building up and plugging the metering roller/auger.
  • Do not leave your seed treater alone when its running, as many things can quickly affect seed treating quality.
  • Be attentive to factors that can cause changes to nozzle pressure, including the power source to the pump, an object blocking the filter or the hose not reaching deep enough into the product.
  • Be cautious of drying times and factors that can lengthen them, such as weather (air temperature, wind speed, relative humidity), seed temperature, seed moisture levels, seed type and water being added during treating.
  • Dilution with water is not required unless recommended by the manufacturer of the seed treatment application equipment. If desired, increase the use rate proportionally to the dilution rate: EX: 100 ml water + 300 ml Teraxxa® F4= 400 ml/100 kg seed. BASF supports the addition of water to Teraxxa F4 to maximum volume of 600 ml (300 ml additional water per 100 kg).
  • Do not use treated seed for food, feed or oil production.
  • In adherence with the "Seeds Act", Teraxxa F4 contains sufficient pigment to conspicuously colour and coat treated seed.
