Recommended for use with vacuum seed meters, John Deere talc is mined in the U.S.A. Some meters require 80/20 Talc and Graphite Blend. This high-grade product is 97% pure and offers the benefit of seed coating and lubrication in one product.
John Deere Dealers also offer Bayer Fluency Agent, a polyethylene wax seed lubricant for corn and soybeans. This alternative to talc can be used in all makes and types of vacuum planters, and reduces the amount of dust in vacuum system exhaust.
