Securus is a proprietary seed coating that improves the appearance, handling and agronomics of seed products. The benefits of Securus start with a specially formulated granule that is dissolved to form a dense polymer solution, delivering market-leading durability. Outstanding durability contributes to more uniform coverage as the coating is bonded to the seed at application and will suffer less damage during handling.

The Securus carrier is talc which is a naturally occurring mineral that is highly stable, chemically inert and odorless. Talc has a plate-like cellular structure that more effectively adheres to seed. Better adhesion means improved flowability

and less dust-off. The Securus polymer is bacteria friendly and pH neutral, supporting high rhizobia levels and ensuring optimum on-seed survival. Securus may include the precise layering of inoculant, fungicide and other growth promoting additives.
