It almost goes without saying that farming has a lot of things that can be improved – including the reliance on graphite and talc based products.   That is why Low Mu Tech created DUST as direct replacement to graphite and talc and why S.I. Distributing is proud to offer it.

 

CLEANER. SAFER. SOY. SOLUTION

Choose soy-protein DUST as a healthier, safer and cleaner seed  and mechanical lubricant and as a replacement to graphite and talc.

This innovative, microplastic-free lubricant is the perfect seed box treatment for your current planter or drill technology to use with any seed. DUST provides the needed lubricity for proper seed flow. No more having to clean your hands, face or clothing from talc/graphite grime.

DUST - SIMPLY CLEANER

DUST is naturally formulated to be less “dusty”.  Due to this, it doesn’t take to the air as willingly as graphite/talc. DUST also does not leave your hands, your face, or your clothing dirty.  It wipes off on contact and goes where wanted:  on the seed and into the furrow.    

-

DUST IS CREATED ENTIRELY FROM U.S. SOURCED SOYBEANS 

 It takes one bushel of soybeans to make 11 lbs. of dust.  

Since it is made from soy protein, it will disappear within 28 days from the furrow and provide more green-up and early plant viability.

 
BECK'S 2021 TALC REPLACEMENT STUDY
 
PURPOSE:  To evaluate various talc replacement products and their effect on yield and profitability.
 
In Beck's 2021 Talc Replacement Study, at a participating site in Minnesota:
 
For soybeans, DUST had a + $32.20 per acre return on investment.
 
For corn, DUST had the highest return on investment per acre of + $16.70 per acre ROI.

WHY DUST? 

• Does all the things like Graphite and Talc with none of the problems!

• Lowers static electricity

• Healthier to use

• Don’t wear it home!

• Not found in the soil after 28 days

 

DUST PROVIDES THE NEEDED LUBRICITY FOR PROPER SEED FLOW 

Ajay Sharda, Ph.D., Agricultural Engineering at Kansas State University, evaluated the fluency of Dust with funding from the United Soybean Board (USB). Sharda said, “Dust is as equally good as talc and graphite on seed flowability and we achieve the same level of corn seed singulation as other commercial product on all the different seed metering mechanisms.” Sharda’s research showed no differences between DUST when compared to talc, graphite and Fluency Agent Advanced on corn seed singulation. “Regardless of speed or population, DUST gave 98-99% singulation, the desired industry standard. However, DUST provided slightly better singulation with soybeans.”
