Spring Inoculant Handling Reminder

Posted: May 05, 2021

Spring can be a hectic time where plans change by the minute.  Make sure to take care of your inoculants by storing them where they are away from direct sunlight and freezing temperatures, and remember to keep inoculated seed out of direct sunlight by tarping your trucks or parking them out of the sun.

When applying inoculants with chemical seed treatments, always ensure they are compatible. You can find the BrettYoung Inoculant Compatibility information HERE.

If you have any questions on handling or application of inoculants from BrettYoung contact your BrettYoung RAM.
