ProBio® Organic Seed Priming
Organic Seed Priming is especially valuable under sub-optimal growing conditions in the field, particularly in cold, wet and/or extreme heat conditions. Seed priming involves taking seed through the early stages of the germination process by exposing the seeds to various abiotic conditions. Priming brings all seeds to an equal point of germination, enabling fast and uniform emergence when planted.
Priming stacked with other Germains seed technologies maximises your crop’s potential from planting to harvest. In addition, ProBio® Health and Pelleting products can be combined with Priming customized according to customer requirements.
ProBio® priming technologies offer many benefits, including:
- Faster speed of emergence
- Improved uniformity
- Earlier canopy development
- Wider temperature range for germination
- Increased final population
- Optimized harvesting performance
- Higher yields
Organic seed priming is available for crops such as lettuce, carrots, onions, parsley, chicory, endive, escarole, and radicchio. You may also stack priming with other organic seed treatments such as pelleting and biological crop protection treatments.
