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.
Molasses is a unique material and it can be a very beneficial input on your farm to promote the health and vitality of your soil. Molasses provides an effective, available source of carbon energy and carbohydrates to feed and stimulate the growth of beneficial microorganisms so your soil life will flourish to create greater natural soil fertility.
Organic molasses is a unique bio stimulating material that can be a very beneficial input on your farm to promote the health and vitality of your soil. Molasses provides an effective, available source of carbon energy and carbohydrates to feed and stimulate the growth of beneficial microorganisms so your soil life will flourish to create greater natural soil fertility.
NTS Bio-P™ is designed to solubilize these phosphorous reserves by utilizing two specialist bacteria, Azotobacter species in conjunction with a phosphate liberator – Bacillus subtilis. These bacteria provide a faster release of rock phosphate and enhance phosphate release to your crop throughout the whole growing season.
Root health is plant health and these organisms are the essence of healthy roots. Glomalin produced by AMF generates over 30% of the world's soil carbon so adding AMF to your soil will build humus. This blend also boosts phosphate and zinc availability and lifts calcium levels in plants.
TrueKelp has been proven in independent testing to increase yields, improve tolerance to heat, drought, salinity, and disease stresses. It has also been proven to improve plant health and vigor, cell wall strength, root mass and depth, photosynthetic efficiency, and plant antioxidant levels.
