Organic seed solutions
In North America we offer a range of pelleting and priming products for organic vegetable crops like lettuce, onion and parsnip. All our products for the North American organic market are compliant with the requirements of the federal regulatory program NOP (National Organic Program) which regulates all substances used.
Pelleting maximises planting efficiency while maintaining the seed’s germination capacity. Priming products support germination when conditions are not optimal. A good example is XSpecial Organic. This is a priming for lettuce seeds which will overcome thermodormancy, raising the temperature window in which seeds will germinate by 10 degrees. It will also break photodormancy allowing seeds to germinate in light or dark conditions and give a stronger crop stand.
In Europe we offer organic pelleting, priming and upgrading. Film coats are the ideal carrier for (bio)fungicides and various additives to protect and nourish the seed and crop. Our pelleting products increase planting efficiency and our priming products support uniform germination and plant stand, break some types of seed dormancy and broaden the temperature range in which seeds will germinate. Our highly innovative X-ray upgrading techniques can significantly increase the percentage of useable transplants in a seed lot.
