Why are some Lawn Seeds Coated?
- Improved Ballistics: By adding weight, size and smoothness to each seed, the ease of spreading is improved, helping to get a more uniform ground coverage.
- Nutrients for Establishment: The latest coating includes a range of nutrients designed to supply the young seedling until its root system can tap into fertiliser or soil nutrients.
- Seedling Protection: Application of fungicides and insecticides in seed coatings is the most cost effective and accurate method for controlling diseases and pests during seedling establishment.
- Germination Improvements: Recent trials have shown coatings to enhance the speed and strength of germination in some turf species. By holding the moisture close to the seed, the seed is able to get away and establish more quickly.
- Guaranteed Quality: Only the best seed lines are used for seed coating and a further guarantee of quality all seed is germination tested immediately after coating.
