UltraCoat®

UltraCoat® is a proprietary seed coating used to improve the appearance, handling and agronomics of our top forage and turf products. The benefits of UltraCoat start with the polymer, where it is specially formulated to have exceptional durability providing uniform seed coverage and on-seed setting. The polymer uses talc which has a plate-like cellular structure that readily adheres to seed. Better adhesion means improved flowability and less dust for the user. The UltraCoat polymer is bacteria friendly and pH neutral supporting high rhizobia levels and compatibility with other growth promoting additives ensuring optimum on-seed-survival.       

UltraCoat includes precise layering of Apron XL® fungicide on grasses and OMRI certified Nitragin Gold® inoculant on legumes. Apron XL guards against diseases that can inhibit emergence, plant stand, plant health and ultimately yield potential. Nitragin Gold consistently delivers high levels of nitrogen fixation through specially selected natural rhizobia strains.
