Gro-Coat®

 Gro-Coat® is an industry-leading way to deliver conventional pelleting requirements.

 What is it?

This seed treatment is a pellet application for most vegetable seed that germinate in average conditions such as California Coastal climates. It is a pelleting process that can be customized for a range of requirements  in terms of density and size.  

 
Not primed

Gro-Coat® is not for use on light sensitive lettuce varieties or those lettuces that will be planted and germinated in high heat conditions; those seeds need to be primed.

 

Weights

We have developed different pellet weights and densities to fine-tune plantability and ease of handling. Conscientious growers adjust the weight of their pellets to match their tractor speeds. Faster tractors require heavier pellets  for more straighter accurate drops. More accurate drops produce less bounding in the seed furrow, and that maintains field singulation and uniform plant spacing. All pellets have the same volume, but the weight (density) can vary.

This product is available in several weights: High Density (HD) Medium Density (MD) Light Density (LD). The pellet size can remain the same, and we can modify the weight to meet the needs of you, your fields, and your equipment.
