ProFlo® is a heavy seed encrustment coating that increases the seed size and weight to help improve singulation when planted with a vacuum seeder. Proflo improves singulation during planting vs. planting raw seed while making the seed more visible in the soil. Unlike the traditional round pellet with a specific pellet size, encrustments maintain the seeds natural shape while adding bulk and weight to the seed so that it flows through vacuum planters with fewer skips and doubles.
