XiteBio Announces Newly Expanded Registration for PulseRhizo

XiteBio Technologies introduces PulseRhizo, a liquid inoculant for pea, lentil & faba bean, to the Canadian and U.S. markets for the 2016 season. XiteBio PulseRhizo officially replaces the previously registered XiteBio PeasRhizo and expands on an enhanced label. PulseRhizo features the following enhancements:

  • product use expanded to include faba bean
  • on-seed compatibility with most popular seed treatments extended to 48 hours
  • application methods expanded to include in-furrow as well as on-seed treatment

“XiteBio PulseRhizo is the result of collaborative efforts with growers and retailers to deliver on our commitment to enhancing our product lines”, says Manas Banerjee, president & CEO of XiteBio Technologies.
“By continually communicating with the end users, we’re able to adapt to a changing marketplace to improve agriculture production” says Bob Reekie, business & product manager at XiteBio. Reekie further adds “lengthening the on-seed window to 48 hours with chemical seed treatments and the additional in-furrow application just opens up new opportunities for the pulse crops in the Prairies. We hope it is going to be an embracing technology for the pulses”.
