    It’s mostly micronutrients on Kabuli chickpea and marrowfat peas actually. I’ve done some trials here with just water and the chickpeas and could likely get that volume in a blender. However I don’t know if its good to wet the seed that much. After a couple days of sitting the moisture came down to about 19%. It began at 13.9. I’m hoping to go to possibly half the volume by running it slowly through a poly cupped flighting auger in hopes of making the seed a bit less fragile with an overnight settling period in a truck before loading the seed cart. It’s going through a 787 John deere cart to a 40ft seeding tool.
