Redundancy is the secret of plants’ resilience

Redundancy is the secret of plants’ resilience

Seeds, unlike  mature plants, are not redundant systems: each part is unique and vital, and even a small damage or deficiency can impair their ability to germinate.

That it is why it is necessary to protect them from the attack of soil borne diseases and pests. Applying protection and nutrition products directly onto the seed, it is a sustainable way to ensure the germination of planted seeds. Besides this technique grants the survival of the plant in the part of its life cycle right after emergence, when redundancy of its vital organs is minimal.

Plant protection and nutrition products are generally applied to the seed in the form of solid active ingredients suspended in water. After drying the solid particles of active ingredient (milled to a size in the range of microns) can be easily removed by mechanical movimentation of the seeds as it happens during sowing. To avoid the emission of dangerous dust clouds during the mechanical sowing operations, we have developed a coating polymer, formulated in a way that eventually improves the machinability of the seeds, reducing the frequency of skipped sites and of two seeds dropped in the same site.

If you want to know more about this technology, about how seeds are coated and about the benefits of using our coating polymer and pigments, please take a look at the resources below.
