Every NITRO-COATED® seed begins with an Advantage. NITRO-COAT® is an integration of proven research, innovative technology, and state of the art systems, designed to help plants reach their full establishment and yield potentials. We call it the NITRO-COAT® Advantage!
Just like naturally occurring rhizobium in the soil aren't equally beneficial, those applied to seed can vary in quality and performance. NITRO-COAT® rhizobium strains are specifically chosen for each seed type.
Our Multi-Strain® technology for alfalfas is an exclusive blend of four rhizobium strains, developed from over 30 years of research. While others only offer one strain, NITRO-COAT'S® four-strain rhizobium is an added insurance policy.
With NITRO-COAT'S® coating process you can be assured that only the top-performing and crop-specific rhizobia will be applied to ensure your clovers reach maximum nodulation, stand establishment, and yield potential.
In many ways, the process of seed coating is just as important as the coating components. NITRO-COAT® is more than a coating product, it is an exclusive process to ensure consistent, effective coating.
Every bag of NITRO-COATED® seed is processed through our modern coating facility, using state-of-the-art equipment and the latest computerization and automation, giving our technicians complete control of the entire process.
Throughout the NITRO-COAT® process, our on-site quality-control lab continually runs tests to ensure correct moisture content, durability, viability, quality, color, and consistency.
The NITRO-COAT® operation team has over 40 years of combined expertise in coating seed, providing our customers a comfort level that each coating order will be filled correctly, consistently, and efficiently.
Our unique dual-line coating facility allows us to either run high volumes, or multiple NITRO-COAT® simultaneously.
NITRO-COATED® seed offers many other advantages to ensure your seed has the most potential for establishment and performance. Here are a few:
A key to any successful establishment and early seed development is moisture. NITRO-COAT® is naturally water absorbent and helps attract soil moisture to the seed, getting your stand established quickly.
Fungicides have been proven protectionsagainst diseases like root-rot and pythium. NITRO-COAT® is designed to keep these valuable protectants near the seed through early seedling development.
If you needs an all-natural,organic coating, look no further. An organic version of NITRO-COAT® is available for alfalfas, clovers, and legumes. Our coating has been reviewed and listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI).
Our system and expertise allows us to customize NITRO-COAT® coating formulations to fit your needs, without compromise to quality. Whether you need specific colors or certain fungicides, we can design a coating to fit your marketing needs.
