Primo GX2

In-furrow, multi-action granular chickpea, lentil, & pea inoculant


Primo GX2 is an in-furrow, multi-action granular inoculant that brings more Nitrogen to peas, lentils, soybeans, peanuts, and other plants. This peat inoculant performs well in harsh planting conditions and helps strengthen water and nutrient uptake for maximum yields. By combining high levels of Nitrogen-fixing rhizobia with a biological growth enhancement liquid, Primo GX2 granular inoculant works to improve overall plant health.

The pulse inoculant formulation maximizes the effectiveness of the rhizobia, boosting plant health from the start and enabling the seed to reach its full genetic potential to maximize yield. Primo GX2 granular peat inoculant leads to increased seedling vigor, improved stand count, enlarged root mass development, and additional nodulation.

Granular Inoculant Benefits
  • Increases seedling vigor during early growth stages
  • Improves stand count for quicker canopy development and increased yield potential
  • Enlarges root mass development, leading to improved water and nutrient uptake
  • Generates additional nodulation for improved Nitrogen uptake to increase the potential number of pegs and pods that are set

Frequently Asked Questions: Primo GX2 Granular Inoculant 

How does Primo GX2 work?

Primo GX2 contains crop-specific rhizobia and Azospirillum brasilense, making it an ideal inoculant for peas, vetch, lentils, chickpeas, garbanzo beans, soybeans, and peanuts. The rhizobia helps your plants produce nodules for better Nitrogen uptake. The Azospirillum helps your plant build a bigger, stronger root system for better nutrient and water uptake. 

Which conditions can Primo GX2 provide help for?

If you’re working with virgin ground, soils low in native Nitrogen-fixing bacteria, high soil pH levels, land that’s reentering production after the Conservation Reserve Program, or areas with marginal rainfall, Primo GX2 granular peat inoculant can help your peas, chickpeas, soybeans, peanuts and other legume plants overcome stress, perform better, and provide greater yield.

Is Primo GX2 a recommended granular inoculant for peas?

Yes. Primo GX2 is a highly rated granular inoculant for peas, lentils, soybeans, and peanuts. This peat inoculant helps each crop reach its full genetic potential, leading to greater plant health and yield.

What is a granular peat inoculant?

Granular peat inoculant is an inoculant formulation that allows the user to apply the inoculant in the seed furrow where it has the best chance to interact with the developing root system. The granule provides protection for the rhizobia from less than favorable conditions at planting, allowing for maximum survival and high numbers to interact with young plants.

What are the benefits of using Primo GX2 granular peat inoculant over other varieties of inoculants?

Primo GX2 provides protection for the rhizobia until they are released in the soil where they interact with the developing plant. The unique addition of Azospirillum brasilense provides an additional source of nitrogen to the plant even before it has a chance to form nodules, among other benefits.

Do peas need an inoculant? Do chickpeas need an inoculant?

Yes, every legume crop can benefit from the application of an inoculant. The rhizobia in the inoculant are typically better at fixing nitrogen than the background rhizobia that survive in the soil from year to year. Inoculation concentrates high numbers of rhizobia where they can interact more efficiently with the developing root system and inhabit the nodules that are the most beneficial to the plant, the ones at the crown of the root system. The ability of the inoculant to out-compete the background rhizobia for the limited number of nodulation sites on the roots is key.
