• Apply the JumpStart suspension to seed using a
  flow regulated applicator when transferring seed
  from the bin to the truck, or from the truck to the
  tank or seed cart.
• Fill the applicator tank with the required volume of
  cool, clean water (refer to Table 1).
• While mixing continuously, slowly add the contents
  of the JumpStart container to the water in the
  applicator tank.
• Mix well and agitate continuously to avoid settling.
• Determine the auger flow rate in kg/min, and set
  the applicator to achieve the required flow rate
  (refer to Table 2). For best mixing run the auger at
  full speed and less than full capacity.
