Verdesian Life Sciences Adds Peanut Inoculant
Verdesian Life Sciences adds Primo Power CL, a new liquid inoculant, to its seed enhancement portfolio. This peanut inoculant opens the door for more nodules, which provides more available nitrogen to increase the potential number of pegs and pods that are set.
“Peanuts that get a faster, healthier start and develop a larger root mass can improve the crop’s chances for reaching its genetic potential for greater yields,” says Kurt Seevers, Verdesian Life Sciences technical development manager. “Its concentrated liquid formulation offers a convenient, lower use rate for more efficient application.”
Designed to increase peanut yield potential, Primo Power CL is applied in furrow at planting. The company reports that it improves root development and stand count. The product is an evolution of the Verdesian’s original Primo Power inoculant, which has been proven to deliver more profit per acre than industry competitors.
Its specially selected strains of rhizobia are also proven to help peanuts perform in a wide range of soils and in unfavorable conditions.
“Primo Power CL gives growers the confidence that the rhizobia bacteria is there to give their peanuts the best chance to nodulate and grow,” says Stan Deal, a Verdesian Life Sciences technical sales representative. “They’re setting their crops up for success.”
