- PM 223 is a flowable powder which is applied just like other
powdered potato seed treat products.
- Fill your auger or
barrel seed treater with PM223 and apply it as
you normally apply other seed treat products.
- Application Rate: You
should use @ 0.4lbs. per cwt of seed. The
screws on the auger treater of barrel treater may need to be tightened down (or in some
instances loosened) to get the correct flow/application rate. We have
found that it is difficult to get a full half-pound on one cwt. If you
find that you are using that amount, you will probably be spilling some
onto the floor.
- The treated seed
should have a good visible coating of the product on the cut surface of
the seed. A good coating is sufficient. Having extra product on the cut
surface does not help.
- Although PM223 is not
toxic, it is a fine powder, and appropriate breathing equipment should
be used to protect those working with the PM223 from inhaling it.
