Seed Priming

Seed priming involves taking seed through the early stages of the germination process by exposing the seed to various abiotic conditions. Priming brings all of the seeds to an equal point of germination, enabling fast and uniform emergence when planted.

Benefits of seed priming

  • Faster speed of emergence
  • Improves uniformity
  • Earlier canopy development
  • Wider temperature range for germination
  • Increases final population
  • Optimizes harvesting performance
  • More yield and enhanced product quality
