What is Seed Priming

Seed Priming is the latest technology in engineered seed nutrition. Seed Priming is a powerful advance in modern farming practice and RLF are absolute world-leaders. Now farmers and growers can directly fertilise the seed with a BSN Seed Primer because of RLF Seed Delivery System technology (SDS).

RLF are at the forefront of the agricultural industry and leading the way with a specialised range of BSN products. Seed Priming ensures that plants are set for maximum yield potential.

You are Fertilising the Seed

BSN Seed Primer fertilises the seed by priming it with the optimum level of nutrients.

BSN Seed Primer is engineered to safely deliver the nutrients into the seed embryo (called imbibing). With optimum nutrient in the seed, germination, early growth and young plant formation is directly supported through the first 3-4 weeks of development.

The practice of Seed Priming is proven to achieve growth, yield and many other environmental benefits because the plant is able to satisfy its nutrient requirements directly from seed.

Don’t get Confused

Seed Priming is not the same as a seed coating. A seed coating uses the seed as a physical carrier to transport the coating into the soil and disperse it within close proximity to the seed. This nutrient cannot be used by the seed until it has developed a suitable root structure that intercept with the transported nutrient from the coating.

A Seed Primer imbibes seed nutrient directly inside the seed and provides this nutrient to the seed for immediate use by the developing plant from its very first beginnings. This nutrient continues to be available during the early weeks of the plant’s growth and development.

The following graphic demonstrates the important principle of BSN’s High-analysis Broad-spectrum nutrient being imbibed by the seed as compared to a seed coating that dresses the seed.

Fertilising the Seed is Efficient

Delivery of nutrient via the seed is the most efficient and effective process when compared to delivery of nutrient via the Leaf and Soil. Seed delivery is low input, functional and can ensure up to 95% of supplied nutrient is provided in a usable form for the seed to apply to its future growth and development.

Proven to Work

RLF released the first generation BSN Seed Primers in 1999 and since that time BSN treated seed has been sown to tens of millions of acres. Ongoing investment in Research and Development in both laboratory and field trials has lead to the latest generation Seed Primers. Whilst the cost of BSN is only a small part of the fertiliser budget, the financial benefit to the grower is significant as demonstrated in Independent Replicated Trials. In addition, independent Data and Field Trials demonstrate that regardless of the rate of phosphorus granular fertiliser applied to the soil, BSN is effective in increasing yield.

Easy to Handle

BSN can be easily integrated into current on-farm seed treatment practices. It can be applied in conjunction with many agricultural chemicals used for disease and pest prevention, thereby reducing labour costs and making the process of on-farm application simple. BSN is sprayed onto the seed. This can be as the seed is transported rapidly by auger to a silo or truck, or simply manually applied. It is completely imbibed by the seed in 20 minutes. Following treatment, BSN is specially formulated to flow easily from the silo and through air seeders. Treated BSN seed can be stored for extended periods of time when required.
