Clean seed, pure & simple.

Yield is a primary focus when developing seed technologies. However, without clean and healthy seed, potential yield increases may be compromised. Seed-borne diseases are a serious issue that costs both the seed industry and vegetable growers a significant amount of money each year. Gopure is a conventional seed disinfection treatment that uses a combination of processes and/or crop protection products that inhibit the growth of seed-borne pathogens, such as Xanthomonas. Customizable to meet your field challenge, stack gopure with conventional fungicides for added protection from soil-borne pathogens such as Pythium, Rhizoctonia, and Fusarium.

Key benefits:

  • Reduces pathogens to nearly undetectable levels post-treatment
  • Improves seed and seedling health, helping to optimize yield
  • Causes little to no impact on germination or shelf life
  • Protects future crop rotations by reducing the transfer of pathogenic organisms into the field
  • Microplastic free

Seed disinfection treatment for carrots

Carrot overview

Bacterial leaf blight, otherwise known as Xanthomonas campestris pv. carotae, is a concern to carrot seed producers and growers in many regions of the world. The bacterium can survive on or in a carrot seed, spreading via the seed’s movement through the supply chain into the field. Planting healthy, clean seed is an essential first step for effectively managing bacterial leaf blight.

Carrot trial data

Tested on five carrot varieties, independent lab results conclude gopure is an effective solution for removing Xanthomonas from carrot seed without impacting germination or shelf life.

Minimize stress, maximize performance.

The early stages of any living organism are vital to future growth and development. Germains has 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 many benefits to both the plant and the grower.

“After monitoring a few trials with control vs goseed, I have noticed an obvious difference in Emergence, Weight, and Yield.” Arturo Munoz, Romaine Harvest Manager at Ocean Mist

Desert lettuce trial

Germains conducted summer Heat Stress Trials and fall Value Justification trials for three consecutive years in Yuma, Arizona. The objective was to demonstrate the performance of Germains lettuce desert pellets versus our competitors.

Germains continue to deliver products that outperform competitors’ in early emergence and under high-temperature stress, leading to an increase in potential yield and benefiting the grower in the field. To improve emergence and overcome thermodormancy, goseed is an effective seed treatment solution.
