Coated Seed Rhizo

Rhizobacteria-inoculated seed

Coated Seed Rhizo contains specific rhizobia bacteria tailored to the plant species in question. So, for all legumes, there are suitable rhizobia strains for optimum performance. Legumes are only able to convert atmospheric nitrogen from the soil into plant-usable nitrogen with the aid of root nodule bacteria. These bacteria form a symbiotic relationship with the legume. Once the plant has produced its first root hairs after germination, it excretes substances into the soil which attract the bacteria. The bacteria penetrate the root hairs and the first nodules are formed.

In these, the bacteria obtain nutrients produced by the legume and in turn the bacteria absorb nitrogen from the soil and convert it into nitrate or ammonium which is then made available to the plant. The closer the nodule bacteria are to the plant’s root hairs, the faster the nodules are formed.

The active substances contained in coated seed are supplemented by inactive rhizobacteria, which are activated as soon as the coating absorbs moisture and the seed starts to germinate.

Benefits of Coated Seed Rhizo – overview:

  • Coated Seed Rhizo contains specific rhizobacteria in addition to the “Classic” active ingredients
  • Inoculation with rhizobacteria ensures rapid symbiosis between plants and bacteria and therefore rapid nitrogen fixing
  • Clear growth edge compared to conventional seeds
  • Specific rhizobacteria formulations comprising bacterial strains that are optimally matched to the host plant are available for each plant variety.
  • Available for: lucerne/alfalfa, several varieties of clover and small-grain legumes
