Seed Treatment Test Results
Comparing Seed Treatment Results
The seed treatment industry includes a variety of products designed to help with plant vitality. We compared seed treatment results testing Genesis Ag’s Invigor 8 and Invigor 8 + against a control treated seed during an in-house test that mimicked cold ground temperatures and very harsh conditions. As you may know, Invigor 8 is our signature corn seed treatment that now comes in a liquid. Invigor 8+ adds a biological component for even stronger results.
These two-year old corn seeds were placed in a 45 degree environment for five days then brought to a 68-72 degree temperature for 11 more days. They were covered with foil to allow the roots to grow along the sides of the cup.The seeds treated with Invigor 8 and Invigor 8+ showed stronger root systems and more biomass above ground. The biomass weight results were as follows:
- Control – 4.279 grams
- Invigor 8 – 4.488 grama
- Invigor 8 + – 4.983 grams
These seed treatment results are similar to results our customers see in their fields with stronger starts, improved root developed, and more uniform stands.
