Seed Application

Seed application, commonly called seed tanning or seed treatment or seed coating, consists in applying substances (fertilizers or biostimulants) to the seed in a precise and localized manner, aimed at stimulating a more rapid emergence of the plants. This allows to safeguard the value of the seed for the benefit of the productivity and quality of the crop, thanks to the physiological effects of tanning and to the greater resistance of the plants to abiotic stresses. It has been shown that the use of tanned seed, compared to untreated seed, leads to significant production increases. In fact, it is estimated that without the use of tanned seeds there could be crop losses even higher than 20% and possible cost increases of up to 200%. Seed quality is an important aspect of the modern cultivation strategies since uniform germination and high seedling vigor contribute to successful establishment and crop performance.

The demand for biological solutions for seed treatment is increasing, as they represent an innovative and sustainable solution for ensure potential yield and quality by minimizing crop loss. Biological seed treatment has beneficial effects on the growth, resilience of the plant, abiotic stress, the development of the root system, and the productivity of the crop.

Hello Nature biostimulants such as plant growth-promoting bacteria, rhizobia, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, and Trichoderma, can be efficiently applied as seed coating of many crops. Our seed treatment strategy is the sustainable basis of the entire crop cycle, allows for better germination, increases plant resistance and the availability of nutrients. It promotes crop growth, increases the yield and assists crops in improving seedling establishment and germination or achieving high yields and food quality, under reduced chemical fertilization. Biological seed coating also increases plants tolerance to abiotic stresses (drought, salinity, heat, cold etc.).

Our seed treatment biostimulant products go beyond the limits of traditional chemical tanning, thanks to their polyvalent action and high persistence of action.  The application of biostimulants and microorganisms to the seed stimulates and supports the development of the plant throughout the crop cycle. Thanks to the beneficial effects on plants and giving them greater resistance to abiotic stress, they allow to safeguard the value of the seed for the benefit of productivity and quality of the yield.

Furthermore, our seed coating based on microorganisms, in addition to being natural and usable also in organic farming, guarantee a good productive and qualitative performance in all soil and climate conditions.

Seeds can be treated just before planting by the seed distributor or farmer.
