Sunflower seeds vary in size with seeding rates that range from 15,000 to 25,000 seeds per acre. The size of the seed can require you to make planter modifications such as buying new seed plates or finger pickups before planting your field. To help reduce the likelihood of having to make changes to your planter and or to help improve how the seed flows through your planter, Germains now offers prosun™ sunflower seed pellet.
Germains Seed Technology’s coating systems utilize state-of-the-art process and applications technologies that produce high-quality seed coatings to help improve your crop’s performance. Derived from coating materials successfully applied to tens of millions of acres of sugar beet, prosun™ is a seed pellet scientifically formulated for sunflowers.
Prosun provides added weight and a smooth, slick finish that enables sunflower seeds to flow smoothly through planters helping growers achieve accurate field populations.
