Why Use a Seed Treatment?

Getting more out of your seed

Seed treatment technology has come a long way since the use of salt brine in the mid-1600s. Today, seed treatments deliver clear environmental and economic benefits, making the technology a perfect tool for sustainable agriculture. Over the years, seed treatments have evolved from simply protecting the seed to helping improve long-term plant health, the result being higher production and better quality.

 

Today's seed treatments are designed to enhance plant emergence, growth and nutrition efficiency, which, along with crop immunity, promote a more vigorous and uniform crop.

 

Promoting nutrient availability and disease resistance

 

The time between planting and emergence is the most vulnerable stage of a plant's development. Once in the soil, the seed is susceptible to damage from insects, pests, and bacterial and fungal pathogens. Seed treatments can be used to soften the seed coat, promote germination and provide starter nutrition that enables critical plant processes that build plant immunity. Seed treatments can also be used to inoculate the soil around the seed with beneficial microorganisms that will provide immediate and long-lasting protection from pathogens. Microbial inoculants as seed treatments in the form of phosphorus-solubilizers, nitrogen fixers, and mycorrhizal fungi, can boost nutrient delivery from the soil to sustain growth long after the applied nutrient supplies are exhausted.
