CoMo

Formulated to provide completely soluble Co and Mo to germinating seed or leaf for rapid absorption and distribution.

What it does

  • Provides soluble Co and Mo to germinating seed or leaf 

What that means

  • Rapid absorption and distribution throughout the plant
  • Aids process of symbiotic nitrogen fixation by rhizobia bacteria in root nodules of legumes
  • Increased supply of nitrogen in legumes

Application timing

  • In-furrow application: For soybeans, apply 1 to 1.5 pt/A
  • Foliar application: For soybeans, cowpeas, dry beans, lentils, snap beans, peanuts and other large seeded legumes, apply 1.5 pt/A at the 4 to 5 true leaf stage in 10 gallons of water or a volume sufficient for thorough coverage. For alfalfa, red clover, ladino clover, sweet clover, lespedeza, trefoil and other perennial legumes grown for forage, hay or silage, apply 1.5 pt/A in 10 gallons of water or a volume sufficient for thorough coverage when early growth is 4 to 6 inches tall. To assure effective movement into the nitrogen-fixing nodules, make application at least two weeks before cutting.
  • Seed treatment: Apply directly to the seed in the planter box or other suitable container that provides for thorough coating of the seed. For soybeans, cowpeas, dry beans, lentils, snap beans, peanuts and other large seeded legumes, apply 4 to 8 ozs/CWT seed.

CoMo is formulated to provide completely soluble cobalt and molybdenum to the germinating seed or the leaf for rapid absorption and distribution throughout the plant, which translates into higher yields. 

CoMo can provide cobalt and molybdenum to the plant as a seed treatment or as a foliar application. Cobalt and molybdenum are both necessary for stimulating nitrogen fixation by rhizobium in the nodules of legumes. Many times the growth response to molybdenum may be limited by levels of cobalt. These two nutrients affect the total nitrogen supply to the plant.

Seed treat or spray plants when they are young. One application per year should be sufficient. Within 10 days after planting in some soils, soybeans seed-treated with CoMo may exhibit micronutrient shock and subsequent short-term yellowing as nodulating bacteria infect roots and begin forming nitrogen-fixing nodules.
