EcoTea (TM) Dry Seed Dressing is a biologically active inoculant that will help break seed dormancy, facilitate germination, improve root development, support nutrient efficiency, and increase disease resistance. It works by coating seeds with ecologically functioning microbes.

It is a brand new multi-species seed inoculant used not only for legumes, but a wide range of crops. It contains Rhizobium bacteria, known to form nodules in the roots of their host plants, where they gather nitrogen gas from the air. It also contains a multitude of other bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. It’s almost like having powdered compost tea!

Application Instructions

This product comes in a two-pouch combo. Pouch A contains the live inoculant, Pouch B is a special blend of microbial foods and a sticking agent to help the inoculant adhere to the seed.

Just prior to planting, place your seeds in a container and sprinkle with a very small amount of water. Mix and add the inoculant (Pouch A) and microbial foods (Pouch B) and and shake or stir until all seeds are thoroughly coated. Plant as usual.

Even though the combined weight of the two components totals just 24 grams, one package treats 6 to 8 pounds of seed  (at three to four grams per pound of seed).

For small amounts of seed, use proportionally less product.

Store leftover seed dressing in a cool place away from direct sunlight, not mixed, with the bags closed tightly. It is good for about one year.
