Cell-Tech®


Nitrogen-fixing inoculant


Cell-Tech is a single-action inoculant that contains specially selected rhizobia that can provide effective nodulation to enhance nitrogen-fixation, even in cooler soils – increasing yield potential as planting conditions change.

If phosphate is limited, Cell-Tech can be applied at the same time as JumpStart® inoculant, for improved phosphate uptake.


Western Canada
Cell-Tech is available in peat, non-sterile peat, liquid and granular formulations for pea, lentil and/or soybean crops.


Eastern Canada
Cell-Tech is available in peat, liquid and granular formulations for soybean and in a non-sterile peat formulation for pea and lentil crops.

Cell-Tech liquid should be applied directly to pea or lentil seed at a rate of 2.5 fluid ounces per bushel (60 lb) of seed (75 ml/27 kg) or 2.1 fluid ounces per 50 pounds (63 ml/23 kg). The planting window for Cell-Tech liquid on bare pea or lentil seed is 48 hours.

Cell-Tech liquid should be applied directly to soybean seed at a rate of 2.5 fluid ounces per bushel (60 lb) of seed (75 ml/27 kg) or 2.1 fluid ounces per 50 pounds (63 ml/23 kg) of seed. The planting window for Cell-Tech liquid on bare soybean seed is four days.

9.8 - 130.0 7,840
Soybean 3.1 50 41.7 2,502
12.5 200 167.0 10,000

Cell-Tech liquid can be applied with other seed treatments, but the planting window may be reduced.



Cell-Tech peat has its own sticker in the formulation so no additional stickers are required. Apply Cell-Tech dry to pre-moistened seed, or add water while applying Cell-Tech, or mix with cool, clean water and apply to seed as a slurry (refer to Table 3). Make sure that inoculated seed is evenly coated. Inoculate bare seed with Cell-Tech peat up to 48 hours before seeding, depending on crop.

Cell-Tech NS peat has its own sticker in the formulation. A separate sticker is not needed. Pour Cell-Tech NS onto seed in the drill box and mix thoroughly until uniformly coated. Layering seed and inoculant while mixing will provide thorough coating of all seeds. Inoculate bare seed with Cell-Tech NS peat up to 48 hours prior to seeding.

Cell-Tech and Cell-Tech NS peat can be used with different seed treatments, but planting windows vary according to type of seed treated and seed treatment used.


Cell-Tech granular should be applied directly with the seed in the seed row using a granular tank for application. Application rates vary according to row spacing (refer to Table 5 below).


  • Fill tank to match or slightly exceed seed requirements. Do not overfill tank to avoid compaction.
  • Pour into tank through a screen.
  • Do not mix Cell-Tech in the same tank with seed or fertilizer.
  • Do not leave Cell-Tech granular in the tank overnight as condensation can cause lumps to form.
