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.

Key benefits

Spinach goseed Promotes plant emergencePromotes plant emergence & root development

Spinach goseed enhances plant health to minimise impact of ambiotic strength Enhances plant vigor to minimize impact of abiotic stress

Spinach goseed contains bio-stimulants + micronutrients for improved early crop growthContains micronutrients for improved early crop growth

Spinach goseed maximises crop performance to increase yieldMaximizes crop performance to increase yield

“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.

Trial details

Number of lettuce varieties trialed: 6

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.
