There are a lot of seed treatment options and products on the market, and they all claim to be the best thing since sliced bread! At Bio Minerals Technologies, we're more interested in the health of your soil and your plant than we are in the condition of your bread. If we get the plant right, the bread can take care of itself!
Our seed treatment product has been proven at many farms and in many different environments: irrigated, dry farm, cereal crops, pulse crops, vegetables, grass, gardens, and more. Our customers have been improving their plants and their yields for years and consistently outperforming their neighbors and any other seed treatment option.
So what makes our products different?
Our seed treatment is composed of a proven blend of nutrients and biology applied directly to the seed for maximum effectiveness, nutrition, and protection. Our base formulation per 100 lbs of seed is: 15.15 oz Seed Boost, 0.8 oz Soil Biology Boost, and 0.25 oz powdered soft rock phosphate. The benefits of each component are detailed below.
The liquid portion of our seed treatment includes both plant and biological stimulators which will jump-start the germination of the seed and also help stimulate and proliferate the biology surrounding the seed and the root system throughout the growing season. For conventional farms we also include molybdenum which is essential for our nitrogen-fixing bacteria.
The chitisan element in our Seed Boost formulation is directly toxic to pathogenic fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Chitosan plays a huge roll in S I R, Systemic Induced Resistance, which is a fancy way of saying that it gives a super boost in revving up the plant’s immune system. By eliminating pathogens and strengthening plant resistance, energy can be focused on growth and early vigor in the seedling and early growth stages, giving you stronger plants and better yields at harvest.
Our BioXtreme is an endophytic fungi that colonizes in the spaces between the plant's cells. It works symbiotically with the plants, helping them to better withstand stresses such as drought, heat, cold, and salts. Under stressful conditions, we have seen yield increases of up to 50% over untreated plants. BioXtreme also reduces water consumption by up to 50% and increases nutrient utilization. The addition of BioXtreme to our seed treatment protocol has resulted in significant performance differences over our already beneficial program.
Soil Biology Boost
Soil Biology Boost (SBB) has 12 different groups of biology and each group contains multiple species of organisms. These microbes fix minerals for the plants, N, P, K, S, CA, Mg and trace elements. Some of these organisms fight pathogens and prevent diseases. Other microbes produce enzymes, vitamins, amino acids, organic compounds and antibiotics for the plant to use. These microbes will function all season long under the plants in their root systems. In addition to the microbes, there are 75+ micronized minerals in the SBB powder formula to provide nutrition for the microbes as their bodies grow, reproduce and function. The microbes need the nutrition just as much as the seed does.
Soft Rock Phosphate powder
We use Soft Rock Phosphate powder as part of the Soil Biology Boost, and we also add a little extra for additional nutrition which will feed both the seedling and the microbiology during the critical early growth stages. The micro nutrients contained in the powder also function as activators for many of the internal plant systems and functions helping your crops to grow and yield better results.
One of the greatest benefits of our seed treatment protocol is that we work with nature to nourish and protect the seeds and young plants. We don't need poisons. We have plenty of the beneficial microbes, plus natural pathogen deterrents, so our farmers are able to plant confidently, without a need for supplemental toxins.
