Seeds of rice Akitokari were coated with Calper (CaO2) and sown broadcast or using a seed drill or were coated with Calper and kaolin in equal proportions, Calper with 3% Tachigaren or Calper with both kaolin and Tachigaren. Plant stand and germination tended to be higher with Calper alone than with the additions to the coating, but plant stand was higher with Calper + Tachigaren than with Calper + kaolin or with both kaolin and Tachigaren.
