Gro-Coat®Industry-leading Pelleting Treatment
What is It?
The industry-leading way to deliver conventional pelleting requirements. This seed treatment is a pellet application for most vegetable seed that germinate in average growing conditions and not areas of extreme temperatures. It is a pelleting process that can be customized for a range of requirements in terms of density and size. Available for most vegetable species.
- Are available in numerous sizes and densities.
- Are uniform in size
- Split quickly when exposed to moisture. This is important because when seeds germinate respiration increases dramatically. When seeds respire, they require both moisture and readily available oxygen.
Gro-Coat® is pelleting for seed that is not primed.
We have developed different pellet weights, sizes, and densities enabling users to better fine-tune planters for greater metering accuracy. Growers can adjust the weight of their pellets to match certain seedbed conditions and tractor speeds.
A good example of this is in our lettuce seed offerings. These products are available in several weights: High Density (HD), Medium Density (MD), and Light Density (LD), while the pellet size of each offering remains the same.
