Give your seed the UltraCoatTM advantage

Ultracoat™ is a proprietary seed coating that improves 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.    

Value added forage & turf seed tailored to your needs

Ultracoat is available on most forage and turf species and can be tailored to customer needs. In addition to the proprietary polymer, inoculants and fungicidal seed treatments can be precisely layered to optimize nitrogen fixation and seed health.

Consider adding OMRI-certified Nitrogen Gold® for consistent delivery of high levels of nitrogen fixation through specially selected natural rhizobia strains. As well as, Apron XL® fungicide to protect against diseases that can inhibit emergence, plant stand, plant health and ultimately yield potential.
