Seed coating formulations help to form a true coating of active ingredient around a seed. The coating also helps maintain the health of seeds during storage, transport and germination. This enables farmers to obtain higher yields through the efficient use of active ingredients.
Seed coating formulations are a modification of suspension concentrate formulations with supplemental additives for adhesion to the seed surface and dye as an indication of toxic seed treatment. Croda recommends a dispersant combination of Atlox™ 4913 and Atlox 4894 used with an adhesive binder.
