Filmcoat elite Carrot Overview

Key Benefits

  1. Larger seedlings with longer, more developed roots: Optimize access to moisture and nutrients
  2. Vigorous leaf canopy growth: Outcompete weeds and maximize photosynthesis
  3. Uniform root growth: Beneficial for maximizing harvest of root crops
  4. Increased yield potential: Benefit for the Growers

Field Trial Results

In collaboration with Growers, Plant Breeders and Seed Dealers, Filmcoat elite on Carrot has been trialled for three seasons in California and Mexico providing consistent trial results.

Improvement of overall yield

Improved Uniformity

Uniformity of root crops is particularly important to support effective harvesting. As illustrated left, the Filmcoat elite seed treatment resulted in improved carrot uniformity, compared to the control.

Increased Yield

Yield increases of up to 20% have been noted for Filmcoat elite on carrot, ultimately offering more value to everyone.

Filmcoat elite Jalapeno Overview

Situation

A commercial breeder who produces jalapeno pepper varieties that are popular amongst growers in North America and Mexico inquired with Germains Seed Technology to see if a treatment could be developed to improve the vigor and foliage growth of jalapeno plants. The treatments also needed to be compatible with crop protection products such as thiram. Their objective was to increase the plant's foliar mass of a popular jalapeno variety to help protect the fruit from sun damage. They theorized that the dense canopy will protect the fruit from sunscald, therefore, improve the number of harvestable fruit and improve yield.

Solution

Sunscald may decrease harvestable yield,especially when harvesting the crop two or three times. To obtain more foliage and improve plant vigor for sun protection, the Filmcoat elite treatment was applied to jalapeno pepper seeds. Two independent commercial growers in Bakersfield, California, and Sinaloa, Mexico planted 100,000 seeds treated with Filmcoat elite thiram and 100,000 treated with thiram. The grower's reported "that jalapeno seeds treated with Filmcoat elite and thiram produced more developed roots, stronger plant structure and more foliar weight and reduced the number of fruit damaged by sunscald."

Key Benefits

  1. Vigorous leaf canopy growth: Protect fruit from sunscald, optimizing plants for multiple harvests
  2. Larger seedlings with increased foliage: Improve plants ability to withstand the transplant process
  3. Enhanced root development: Strengthen plants for growth in harsh growing conditions
  4. Increased yield potential: Benefit for the Growers

Field Trials

Compared with seed treated with only a filmcoat with Thiram, grower trials demonstrate that jalapenos treated with Filmcoat elite and Thiram develop more roots, stronger plant structure, vigorous plant canopy to protect fruit from sunscald, and a continued onset of flowers after first harvest. Filmcoat elite is compatible with emergis® priming, thiram, and other crop protection seed treatments.

Results

[caption id="attachment_11120" align="aligncenter" width="446"]untreated vs. treated filmcoat Untreated vs. Treated filmcoat on jalapenos[/caption] Compared to seed treated with only thiram, trial data suggests that the jalapenos treated with Filmcoat elite combined with thiram developed more roots, stronger plant structure, heavier plant weight and more setting fruit. Trial data also reports that the crops experienced a continued on set of flowers after the first harvest.

The early stages of any living organism are vital to future growth and development. Germains have developed a technology that focuses on early plant nutrition, even before the plant emerges, ensuring its success in variable growing conditions. goseed® maximizes the potential nutrient uptake of the seedling, offering a number of benefits to both the plant and the Grower.

Key Benefits

  • Larger seedlings with increased foliage
  • Enhanced root development
  • Improved vigour for better stand in the field
  • Increased yield potential

Desert Lettuce Trial

For three consecutive years, Germains has been conducting summer Heat Stress Trials and fall Value Justification trails in Yuma, Arizona. The objective is to demonstrate the performance of Germains lettuce desert pellets versus our competitors.

Trial Details

Number of lettuce varieties trialed: 6 Priming: Emergis Pellets: OxyKote® (10,500 – 13,000 pellets per pound) ProPellet® Heavy (16,000 – 19,000 pellets per pound) – Available in white or tan color Compared with market standard desert primed and pelleted products

Summary

Germains continue to deliver products that outperform competitors’ in early emergence and under high temperature stress, leading to an increase in potential yield and providing benefit to the grower in the field. For improved emergence, and to overcome thermo dormancy, rely on Germains to “Maximize Nature’s Potential”.
