PREFERRED COATED SEED TREATMENT

Grower Benefit
  • Promotion of early nodule formation for advanced nitrogen fixation which enhances emergence and stand for healthier, faster developing plants.
  • Control of seed- and soil-borne diseases caused by fungi.
  • Promotion of root and shoot development – immediately and independently of soil conditions.

STANDARD SEED TREATMENT

Grower Benefit
  • Demonstrates excellent early crop vigor, which normally results in higher yields at harvest and controls seed and soil borne diseases caused by fungi.
  • Helps forage legumes attain maximum nodulation and nitrogen fixation. Specifically-selected natural rhizobia strains result in high levels of nitrogen fixation for maximum yield potential.

INOCULANT ONLY SEED TREATMENT

Grower Benefit
  • In addition to high yield potential, Nitragin Gold Pre-inoculant is certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for organic planting.
