SabrEx™ for Rice
SabrEx™ for Rice is a biological seed treatment formulated to treat rice. Maximize crop production with the benefits of iGET™ Technology. It performs well with both standard rice seed and hybrid rice varieties.
SabrEx™ for Rice is a formulation of carefully selected patented, proprietary strains of Trichoderma. The Trichoderma colonizes with the plants’ root system and develops a symbiotic relationship with the plant, feeding off the starches and sugars produced by the plant. In turn, the plant benefits from the Trichoderma as they exude enzymes and proteins for the plants use.
Larger Root Systems
The first thing farmers point out when harvesting wheat treated with SabrEx™ for Rice is the difference in root mass and fine hairs in comparison to untreated rice of the same variety. The Trichoderma colonizes in the root system, maximizing the utilization of nutrients. The enzymes and proteins exuded by the Trichoderma result in a larger root system.
One of the most important benefits of SabrEx™ for Rice is the increased tillering which ultimately leads to increased yields.
Efficient Use of Nutrients in Soil
Because SabrEx™ for Rice produces a larger root system and improves nitrogen efficiency, the treated crop improves topsoil tilth and nitrogen scavenging.
SabrEx™ for Rice is available in two different formulations:
SabrEx™ for Rice PB
SabrEx™ for Rice PB is a planter box treatment that can be added just before planting at the planter box. It consists of a talc/graphite formulation as the carrier for the Trichoderma. Add 1.0 oz. (by weight) of SabrEx™ for Rice PB for every 50 lbs. of seed added to your planter. Make sure to mix the SabrEx™ for Rice PB with the seed thoroughly. It should be noted: The talc/graphite formulation also helps to lubricate your planter equipment and also helps provide seed flowability. Refer to the SabrEx™ for Rice PB label for specific rates and directions for use.
SabrEx™ for Rice LQ
SabrEx LQ is a liquid high concentrate formulation for commercial treaters only. It has a low application rate of .25 oz./100 lbs. of seed. Applying SabrEx™ for Wheat and Cereals LQ to the seed is a convenience to the grower. Refer to the SabrEx™ for Rice LQ label for specific rates and directions for use.
