What is Phyter Seed?
Phyter Seed is a plant amendment seed treatment containing a naturally-occurring plant inoculant that contributes to overall plant health.
What can Phyter Seed do for my crops?
In trials, Phyter has been shown to promote effective resistance in soy and other legumes, pulses, corn, cereal grains, oil seed such as canola, vegetables, berries, cannabis and more. It contains a beneficial endophyte that rapidly colonizes plant tissues, improving tolerance to external stress. It strengthens the crop’s natural immunity against abiotic stressors. This amazing organism induces internal plant defense mechanisms through spatial occupation. It contributes to the prevention and to the buildup of toxic metabolites, thus reducing the negative effects on overall plant health and vitality.
The application of Phyter helps to establish a strong relationship among plant roots, stems and leaves, thereby contributing to greater growth, healthier plants and greater yield potential. Phyter can help to suppress the outbreak of diseases such as Fusarium, Botrytis, Sclerotinia, Phomopsis and many more.
Over 25 years of University research and field testing have proved the organisms contained in Phyter Seed to be a very effective foliar-applied plant defense catalyst and protector. It is made from beneficial fungi and designed with an excellent shelf life. In addition to its resistance boosting properties, Phyter may increase germination rates up to 15% in many crops, promote up to 10% faster emergence, and produce, on average, up to 15% larger root mass. It has the potential to ease environmental stress and, as a result, may increase yield by 10-30%. Phyter Seed is a preventative organic product which is most effective when applied before the crop has become infected with pathogens or diseases.
Phyter colonizes leaf tissue, and may be effective in supressing instances of the following pathogens, specifically for the following crops that they affect:
|Pythium Root Rot
||soybeans, peas, beans, and leafy vegetables|
|Rhizoctonia||canola, rapeseed, mustards|
|Aphanomyces||peas, lentils, fava beans|
|Fusarium||wheat, barley, corn, cereal grains, berries, hemp, peppers|
|Botrytis||fruits, berries, vegetables, grapes, hemp|
|Phomopsis||soybeans, hemp, grapes, sunflower|
|Sclerotinia||soybeans, sunflower, hemp, berries, canola|
What's in Phyter Seed?
Phyter Seed contains Clonostachys rosea. Contains Silica as a carrier.
How do I use Phyter seed treatment microbial disease supression?
Phyter Seed is designed to be applied directly to the seed and can be combined with a wetting agent of water or one containing naturally-derived nutrients.
Seed Treatment: Coat seed with 80g of Phyter Seed per 1000kg seed. Use water or a balanced, naturally-derived nutrient supplement as a wetting agent to adhere Phyter Seed to the seed. Do not combine with high-salt fertilizers. Do not use on seed that has been treated with a fungicide or with products containing copper which is a natural fungicide and will inhibit growth of spores. Do not mix with fungicides.
The products we offer are designed to be used together as part of a full-year nutritional program. For more information on use, application rates and timing for specific crops contact Agriculture Solutions today.
