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 a number of benefits to both the plant and the grower.
- Larger seedlings with increased foliage
- Enhanced root development
- Improved vigour for better stand in the field
- Increased yield potential
“After monitoring a few trials with goseed® vs. Control, I have noticed an obvious difference in Emergence, Weight, and Yield.” Arturo Munoz, Romaine Harvest Manager at Ocean Mist
Desert lettuce trial
For three consecutive years, Germains has been conducting summer Heat Stress Trials and fall Value Justification trails in Yuma, Arizona. The objective is to demonstrate the performance of Germains lettuce desert pellets versus our competitors.
Number of lettuce varieties trialed: 6
Pellets: OxyKote® (10,500 – 13,000 pellets per pound) ProPellet® Heavy (16,000 – 19,000 pellets per pound) – Available in white or tan color
Compared with market standard desert primed and pelleted products
Germains continue to deliver products that outperform competitors’ in early emergence and under high temperature stress, leading to an increase in potential yield and providing benefit to the grower in the field. For improved emergence, and to overcome thermodormancy, rely on Germains to “Maximize Nature’s Potential”.
