ALFALFA

This alfalfa program is intended for informational use only. For the best possible results tailored to meet your needs and soil type, check with your AgPro™ representative for specific recommendations.

New Seeding/Pre-Plant

32 oz. per acre (2.5 L/Ha)

RECLAIM 30 days before planting or with post-emergence herbicide or with run-through first water

GOAL:

Increased stand establishment, nutrient release, and seedling vigor. Provide chemical carryover protection.

REASON:

RECLAIM is a premier product that greatly aids in alfalfa stand establishment. It conditions the soil for nutrient release. It enhances root systems by stimulating the plant by increasing the friability of the soil. As an added bonus, it combats chemical residual carryover that may have a negative effect on the seedling at this early delicate stage.

At Planting

16 - 32 oz. per acre (1.25 - 2.5 L/Ha) SEED TREATMENT immediately after planting or 5 oz. per 100 lbs. (150 mL / 45 kg) if applying directly to seed

GOAL:

Stimulate germination of seed and protection.
 

REASON:

Stimulates the beneficial bacteria and fungi that protects the seedling from soil related diseases thus increasing germination.

Established Stand

Normal Soil:

32 oz AIM per acre* (2.5 L/Ha)

 

Alkali/Sodium Soil:

64 oz RECLAIM per acre

(5 L/Ha)

GOAL:

Increase water penetration; reduce compaction; enhance nutrient release.

 

REASON:

On most established alfalfa stands, compaction and/or water penetration are perpetual challenges. AIM and RECLAIM contain unique enzyme complexes that directly stimulate microbial life responsible for agitating and softening the soil profile. This means better air and water management! Increased microbial life also means more nutrients will be made plant available, especially phosphorus and potassium. Yield, quality, and stand longevity are all positively affected.

 

NOTE: *For pH higher than 6.8 and/or high sodium content. Also good for chemically damaged fields.

Between Cuttings

16 - 32 oz. FOLIARPLEX or 

MICROPLUS per acre (1.25 - 2.5 L/Ha)

GOAL:

To stimulate plant regrowth and quality.

 

REASON:

FOLIARPLEX and MICROPLUS are unique plant stimulant products that not only push growth, but aids in reducing plant stress from cutting or weather damage. When tank mixed with foliar ingredients, they greatly increase the plant’s ability to absorb and utilize these nutrients. MICROPLUS is an excellent tool to jump start regrowth!

 

Note: MICROPLUS is very appropriate to tank mix with your foliar nutrient program targeting phosphorus, potassium, boron, and copper.

Herbicide Spray Program

Apply 16 fl. oz. phLAME per 100 gallon tank mix with contact herbicides (0.5 L per 375 L).

Fungicide Spray Program

Apply 16 to 32 fl. oz. SS 9 per 100 gallon tank mix with fungicides (0.5 - 1 L per 375 L).

Insecticide Spray Program

Apply 5 to 10 oz SPREADER STICKER per 100 gallon tank mix with insecticides (150 - 300 mL per 375 L).

NOTE ABOUT SPRAYING

We strongly recommend using an adjuvant with your spray program. AgPro™ specialty surfactants (SS 9, SPREADER STICKER, phLAME) have proven cost effective with spray applications of chemicals (fungicides, herbicides, pesticides) to allow lowest label rates with better results. The synergy can add potency and extend the chemical life and have allowed some growers to experiment and get exceptional results with well under label rates.

 

Please ask your AgPro™ representative for the appropriate product for your needs and grower’s experiences in your area.
