Kalo introduces new Legacy soybean inoculant

Kalo, Inc., a supplier of specialty chemicals for the agricultural and professional turf markets, announced the introduction of its new Legacy

soybean inoculant.

"Legacy is a unique two-part soybean inoculant system containing a super-concentrated liquid inoculant and an EPA registered chitosan-based bio-stimulant. When combined, the two-part mixture provides several key benefits, including increased early season vigor, higher stand counts, nematode suppression, and an average yield increase of 4.8 bushels per acre over seeds that have not been inoculated," said Brett Henson, KALO's Market Segment Manager, Seed Care Products.

According to Henson, Legacy features a low-viscosity rhizobium extender that is up to 30 percent thinner than the leading extenders on the market, thus eliminating treatment system problems such as bridging or clumping of the seed. He further explained that contained within the extender is the chitosan bio-stimulant that triggers a defense response within the plant, leading to the formation of physical and chemical barriers against invading pathogens.

"Unlike conventional pesticides that offer short-lived protection against diseases and nematodes, the chitosan based bio-stimulant in Legacy elicits a systemic acquired resistance within the plant that lasts the entire growing season," Henson said. "The result is a superior soybean inoculant that can be applied up to 95 days on untreated seed before planting and still offer exceptional performance."

Legacy is the latest in a growing line of soybean inoculants, colorants and additives. More information on products is at www.KaloSeedCare.com.
