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 Verticillium, Stemphylium, Cladosporium, Alternaria, and 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.

Approved for use in the United States, Mexico, and Canada

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

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.

Seed disinfection treatment plus crop protection for spinach

Seed-borne fungal pathogens severely impact the fresh spinach market by causing foliar symptoms. Dense planting, poor air circulation, and low plant fertility increase the severity of these diseases. Cladosporium, Stemphyllium, and Anthracnose thrive under wet growing conditions. Germains has treated numerous cultivars from various breeder producers. Clean, healthy seeds are available for spinach growers with proven efficacy at removing these seed-borne pathogens without impacting the seed’s health.

Why take a chance with pathogen-ridden seeds? Start with clean, healthy seeds. With the added benefits of Rancona® and gopure, the combination provides beneficial crop protection from soil-borne pathogens like Fusarium, Pythium, and Rhizoctonia. A thriving, healthy spinach crop starts with gopure.
