When used as a high-performance seed coating, natural diatomaceous earth can be a key to a crop’s success because it helps increase seed size and shape, allowing for mechanical planting. In addition, the diatomaceous earth will help hold and absorb moisture promoting seed germination.

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.
