Increase your productivity, lubricating the seeds and fertilizers with Grafsolo
Why use it
Seeds, for their natural physical characteristics and because of chemical treatments, become rough and increase friction, hindering the flow in different planting systems. This friction can cause the loss of seed germination power and especially an irregular planting, with the presence of faults (seedless spaces) and doubles (more than one seed in the same space). Studies show that in the chemically treated seeds, such as corn, loss reaches 12, 5%.
GRAFSOLO was developed to eliminate this problem.
By adding GRAFSOLO to the seed boxes, it creates a lubricating layer on the seed surface, reducing friction and facilitating the flow during planting.
GRAFSOLO demonstrably does not adversely interfere in the seed germination power, as well as being an inert, non-toxic and non-perishable product.
Grafsolo dosage per kg of seeds
|Distribution System||Small Round Ones||Large Round Ones||Flat Ones|
|FINGERS||1 gramme||1 gramme||2 gramme|
|DISCS||4 gramme||2 gramme||4 gramme|
|SUCTION||4 gramme||2 gramme||4 gramme|
1Never use Grafsolo before or during the chemical treatment.
2Do not mix Grafsolo with other chemicals.
3In untreated seeds use half the indicated dose.
4If swallowed or spilt follow the instructions in the safety data sheet.
5Higher dosages than recommended do not change the expected benefits.
6Do not use Grafsolo as an additive in lubricating oil of engines.
Chemically treated seeds
For the seeds that have suffered additional treatment with chemical products, the seeds should be completely dry before GRAFSOLO is applied. The recommended dosage is indicated in the table in the side margin.
Non-chemically treated seeds
On seeds that have not received chemical treatments half the dosage of GRAFSOLO indicated in the table in the side margin should be used.
GRAFSOLO should be applied with dry seeds and at the recommended dosage according to the table above and present on the product packaging.
GRAFSOLO can be applied directly to the seed box. Place the seeds in the planter box and spread the recommended dosage on them.
To further improve the seed coverage, GRAFSOLO may be applied within the "rotating drum" type mixers.
In this case, add the recommended dosage along with the seeds inside the "drum", turning until there is a homogeneous mixture.
