Seed Boost (Treat)
SEED BOOST (SEEDTREAT) is all about root enhancement and early plant vigor. It is a combination of enzyme complexes, plant hormones, and rooting agents such as giberelic acid and B12. Application of SEED BOOST needs to be targeted on the seed itself. It is often placed in furrow at planting, by itself or mixed with a liquid starter fertilizer. In addition to giving the plant a stronger healthy root system right off the get go, SEED BOOST triggers microbial activity directly around the new seedling, to release nutrients early and make fertilizer more plant available.
SEED BOOST for row crops, can be applied with a liquid in-furrow applicator at planting, preferably WITH starter fertilizer. For permanent perennial crops, it can be run through drip irrigation systems as long as it is concentrated in the root zone. It can also be used as a pre-treat on transplants, cut seed potatoes, or dry seed.
12 oz to 32 oz/acre depending on crop.
Root drench: 3% to 5% solution
Spray directly on seed or seed piece pre-plant, spray in-furrow during planting, or water run it through drip irrigation.
None Known (always perform a jar test before tank mixing). Can be mixed with liquid pesticides.
To enhance root systems and increase young plant vigor.
Can be used on any crop.
The seed, seed piece or root mass - in-furrow at planting, on seed pre-plant, or soak roots before planting. (Potatoes may be treated directly on seed piece immediately after cutting. Seed Boost can be mixed with insecticide/fungicide treatment behind the cutter.)
Can be mixed with most chemical seed treatments and/or nutrient packages
