What is it and how does it work?

What is it?

Platform seed is the go to product if you are looking to add a high potency trichoderma inoculant into your seed coating protocol. 

The product itself is an easy mix wettable powder designed to be incorporated into industry standard seed coating systems, whether by itself or blended with other treatments and polymers.

Platform seed is fortified with a range of specific nutrients that bind to the seed surface and accelerate mycelial growth from the seed after planting. 


How does it work?

After drilling, Platform Seed’s spores germinate and grow on the seed surface ready to establish a symbiotic relationship with the developing roots.

As the seed germinates, the trichoderma’s mycelia bind to the emerging root, forming a strong endophytic bond. This bond ensures long-lasting protection and support for the growing plant, promoting robust growth and improving foliar vigour.

Platform Seed can be applied and is compatible with most common fungicide and polymer treatments. 

Platform Seed is the future of biological seed treatment.

Improved Crop Quality

Planted in November 2020, this Platform Seed treated Kale crop produced impressive results. By applying Platform Seed at a rate of 5g/kg of seed, in combination with a standard insecticide and a commercial water rate of approximately 20ml per kg of seed, farmers have witnessed significant outcomes. Here are the key data points:

  • Establishment counts exceeded the grower standard practice by 10%
  • Dry matter percentage was 13% higher compared to the grower standard practice
  • Yield of 18,792kg DM per hectare achieved
  • Provides a return on investment of around 80 times the initial outlay

Unlock the true potential of your crops by choosing Platform Seed.
