What’s in this Insight
This Insight (IN) is in response to questions often asked by farmers and growers at trade shows and information sessions. It appears that confusion exists about the fundamental differences of the two ‘use of seed’ strategies for farmers to access trace elements.
The two strategies are seed priming and seed coating. The coating of seeds with trace elements such as zinc and manganese are common practices used in Australian agriculture to deliver these important elements to the soil. However, RLF’s advanced practice of priming the seed delivers a fully balanced broad-spectrum liquid solution of all essential elements directly to the seed.
This IN explains the differences.
