Diatomaceous Earth Seed Coatings
Whether agriculturists use diatomaceous earth for soil amendment, as a desiccant, or as an anti-caking mechanism for animal feed, the consensus is clear: diatomaceous earth is an essential mineral. And it can be coated on pre-planted seeds to encourage optimum dispersion and growth.
Key to a Crop’s Success
When used as a high-performance seed coating, Natural diatomaceous earth can be a key to a crop’s success
It Increases Seed Size
Thick diatomaceous earth seed coatings help make very small seeds—like poppy seeds or mint seeds—large enough for mechanical planting.
It Protects Seeds
A thin coating of diatomaceous earth protects larger crop seeds from breaking. It also prevents issues caused by moisture during storage.
It Helps Seeds Germinate
The diatomaceous earth retains applied moisture and helps the seed germinate, improving and accelerating plant growth.
