Treatment of grain as you load your bin
Be prepared this year with Protect-It® as part
of your insect management program.
By now you will have thoroughly cleaned your empty grain bins and treated them with Protect-It®. As the time to fill your bins approaches, it’s important to remember that treating your grain as you auger it into your bin is an important part of infestation prevention.
For maximum efficiency therefore, Protect-It® should be applied to grain as you store it.
Apply Protect-It® while auguring grain into treated storage bin. Remember that it is necessary to adjust application rates depending on the type of grain or seed and the insect species normally encountered in the grain. Standard rates are show in the adjacent table (for grains not mentioned, contact Hedley Technologies).
