The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has granted registration in Canada for Generate for crops and Commence for wheat seed treatment. Both products will be available to Canadian farmers for the 2017 growing season.
According to a news release from Agnition, the company that manufactures both products, Generate utilizes patented Microbial Catalyst technology to simulate microbes in the soil to increase nutrient uptake, “optimizing crop growth and yields. Highly compatible and flexible to fit the farmer’s needs, Generate can be applied in-furrow, foliar or side-dress on corn, soybeans, alfalfa, wheat and sugar beets.”
The company states Commence for wheat is an offensive seed treatment. It simulates the environment around the seed resulting in “superior germination and early plant vigour. Microbial Catalyst technology and ProCoat encapsulation technology in Commence for wheat create a microenvironment where seed can thrive.” Commence for wheat is compatible with other seed treatments and works as an add-on or stand-alone product.
“Through Generate and Commence for wheat, Agnition helps farmers produce more productive plants and soils for healthier more profitable farms,” said Agnition General Manager Cal Ludeman in the news release. “Our entry into Canada will begin a long-term relationship of providing customer-focused solutions that allow the farmer to succeed.”
Generate and Commence for wheat are registered in compliance with the CFIA Fertilizer Safety Section (FSS) Fertilizers Act and Regulations, Registration Number 2016114A and 2016115A.
