Chickpeas (Cicer arietinum), also called garbanzo beans or Bengal gram, are an annual plant of the pea family (Fabaceae). Chickpeas grow best in an area that gets 6-8 hours of sun daily. The plant grows best in fertile sandy, loam soils with good internal drainage. Good drainage is necessary because even short periods of flooded or waterlogged fields reduce growth and increase susceptibility to root and stem rots. India is the world’s number one leader in chickpea production.
Adequate moisture during the growing season is critical to ensuring a healthy crop. However, moisture can also cause yield loss through pod shatter. The intrusion of moisture from rain or dew can cause expansion and contraction of pods, weakening the overall structure. Pod Ceal® binds to a pod’s natural waxes and minimizes this expansion and contraction, helping to minimize pod shatter losses.
Pod Ceal® is a unique formulation containing cyclohexane polymer concentrate.
Systemic Pesticide Applications
Plant health can be negatively impacted by pests in the environment in several different ways. Each of these potential pests also require their own unique solution for control. Exit ® has been purposefully formulated to be combined with pesticides that depend upon rapid uptake and translocation of the active ingredient. Pesticides such as those with systemic or translaminar activity as well as those with hormonal or plant growth regulator effects are particularly well suited for tank mixing with Exit®. The unique ability to increase the speed at which translocation occurs is what defines Exit®.
Exit® is an activator-adjuvant comprising a blend of premium-quality esterified seed oil with a proprietary surfactant and humectant system.
