Seed Boost

Labeled as Seed Treatment

Two direction seedling push:

  1. Enhance rooting
  2. Make nutrition more available to early root structure.

Seed Boost (Seed Treatment) is all about root enhancement and early plant vigor. It is a combination of enzyme complexes targeting enhanced rooting and nutrient availability. Application of Seed Boost needs to be targeted on the seed itself. It is often placed in furrow at planting, mixed with a liquid starter fertilizer. In addition to giving the plant a stronger healthy root system right off the get go, Seed Boost also 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.

APPLICATION METHOD: Spray in-furrow during planting with starter fertilizer, or water run it through drip irrigation. Spray directly on seed or seed piece (pre-plant).

MIXING RESTRICTIONS: None known (always perform a jar test before tank mixing). Can be mixed with liquid pesticides.
