  • Ensures sound and strong root development from an early stage to enhance the efficacy of water and fertilizer usage.    
  • Early stimulation of growth promotes vigour of crop which has a significant effect on yield.
  • Protects against pests and pathogens, such as cob and tassel smut, maize stripe disease, etc. that can affect plants later in the season.
  • Cost-effective with a low impact on the environment.
  • Target specific and protects where it is most needed, namely, directly in the seed and seedling.
  • Offers timeous control when needed most.
