General Information

Seed priming, or osmoconditioning, is a proven method for increasing the rate of seedling establishment through improved germination speed and uniformity. These benefits are more obvious under poor temperature and/or moisture conditions.

Seeds are soaked in an osmotic solution that draws water into the seeds to begin the germination process, but the process is stopped before completion. The primed seeds, when planted, are more likely to germinate than are untreated seeds because they are in a metabolically advanced state.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

Application Rate

Per 100 lbs. (cwt) of cereal seed:

Apply 16 to 22 fluid ounces with an industry accepted seed treater equipped with a mixing rod or a double spray nozzle to improve contact with the grain flow. IGNITOR RTUtmmay be tank-mixed with registered fungicides on the given grains. Under listed application rates, visible surface moisture on the seed will be absorbed within 20 to 40 minutes and moisture content will increase from 0.5% to 2.0%. Treated seed with a moisture content of 12% or less can be stored for several weeks. Treated seed with a higher moisture content must be planted immediately.
