Ground Application/Pre-Plant

(30 days before planting)

Normal Soil:

32 oz. AIM per acre (2.5 L/Ha)

*Alkali/Sodium Soil:

32 oz. RECLAIM per acre

(2.5 L/Ha)


Stimulate soil and prevent disease.


In a properly balanced soil, beneficial microorganisms outnumber and suppress disease causing organisms. AIM and RECLAIM stimulate the soils microbiology, improves air and water flow and balances the soil. RECLAIM has added ingredients to lessen the effects of excess sodium in alkali soils and residual herbicides. The stimulation of beneficial bacteria is designed to increase their numbers and effectiveness in helping minimize the Pythium, Rhizoctonia and other disease causing organisms to minimize any future damage.

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

At Planting

4-8 oz. RENEW per acre (300 - 600 mL/Ha)


Rapid germination, stimulated root growth and disease prevention.


RENEW penetrates quickly and stimulates microbial activity around the seed, stimulating root mass. Increased root growth at this stage increases the health, disease and drought resistance, and yields. This treatment gives the seed a quick, strong start to withstand disease and limit the effects of any adverse environmental conditions such as: drought, flooding, hail, temperature, etc.


8 oz. RENEW per acre (0.625 L/Ha), apply with HEAD MOTH insecticide spray


More complete plant reproductive stimulation.


At bloom stage, RENEW gives the plant some enzyme nutrients to encourage maximum elongations of seeds and greater potential yield.

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).


We strongly recommend using an adjuvant with your spray program. 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 DGC representative for the appropriate product for your needs and grower’s experiences in your area.
