Low Mu Tech Soy Protein planter lubricant has been studied at Kansas State University. It provides top-end singulation and is less abrasive to seeds than talc and graphite. DUST is healthier, non-carcinogenic, and made entirely from U.S. Soybeans. This is your Soy Check-Off Dollars at work!View Tech Sheets

We’ve been using this product for the last four years now. We’ve chosen to use it over graphite. It’s cleaner, easier to use. We’ve seen a great improvement in emergence and stability. Clean-up is very easy. It’s not on your clothes, it’s easy to wipe off and clean-up of machinery is very easy. We take a little bit of compressed air, maybe a wire brush, and off it goes.
We decided at the beginning of the season to setup a comparison between the two (graphic/talc and DUST) because I was not familiar with DUST. We used graphic/talc in one hopper of the planter and we used DUST on the other. The thing that jumped out at me first was on the monitor. We could see on the DUST side of the planter a more even drop rate compared to the talc and graphite side. The next thing we noticed was the cleanliness. On the DUST side, the mini hoppers didn’t have any residue whatsoever. On the side we used talc and graphite on, it had a little build-up of graphite. When you’d fill the graphite side on a windy day, it was everywhere. The DUST side, when you’d fill it, there was basically nothing on you. It was a night and day different. It made the wife happy for sure.
DUST worked very well in our John Deere planter. We have Precision Planting Speed Tube and we were please how it worked in this setup. The cleaner aspect of how the product handles is a major benefit. I have customers who also used it and are pleased.
We used DUST on corn and soybeans in a John Deere CCS Planter. I did not have any issues with bridging. It worked just as good as the 80/20 mix.
I have used this product for 3 years, and it is fabulous. I don’t have the “dust” problems with it and the seed flows out the most even I have ever seen in my planter. I like the ease of use and how I don’t have to wear gloves and worry about getting graphite on my hands, nor worry about inhaling the graphite.
DUST made planting sweet corn almost painless in our JD 1770 24 row. The packing company’s field man was impressed!
