Seed Treatment

Biological Seed treatments are here to protect the future of farming.

As chemical active ingredients are removed from the market globally, growers need effective ways to protect their seed and grow crops more sustainably.

Agrimm manufacture a range of seed treatments that produce cost-effective and repeatable results whether applied on -farm or by commercial seed coating companies.

T-Start Logo

Dry seed inoculant for on farm and augur application to broad acre plantings. Suitable for plantings of 25kg seed and upwards, 5kg will treat 20-25ha.

Concentrated WP formulation for easy liquid application to a range of agricultural and horticultural crops. 1kg will treat 1 tonne grass seed or 4 tonnes of peas / cereals.

Designed for In-furrow liquid application at planting and boom spray application to established crops. Suitable for all Ag crops, 25kg bag treats 20-25ha.

We focus on using the best strains of endophytic Trichoderma to:

Seed Treatment - Promote Early Roots

Promote early root and foliar growth

Get the crop out of the ground faster and with a greater root biomass. This produces stronger healthier plants that can cope with environmental stresses.

Seed Treatment - Improve Nutrient Uptake

Improve nutrient uptake

The action of Trichoderma in and around the roots increases both the amount of plant available nutrients, and the roots’ efficiency to uptake them.

Seed Treatment - Stimulate A Systemic Response

Stimulate a systemic response in the plant

Endophytic Trichoderma trigger the defence mechanism of the plant, priming its faculties and raising photosynthetic performance.

Compatible with conventional fungicides and insecticides

At Agrimm, we test our seed treatments both with and without chemical alternatives. Our products provide excellent protection and have demonstrated solid yield benefits when used on their own, often exceeding conventional chemical treatments.

However, we do understand that some growers may prefer a more “belt and braces” approach and so we test the compatibility of our Trichoderma with chemical active ingredients, both in suspension and on seed.

Our findings, like others in the industry, are that:

“Agrimm seed treatments are not killed by fungicides.”

Why is this?

  • Our method of production produces robust Trichoderma spores which are resistant to fungicides.
  • Seed applied Trichoderma grows out into the soil from the seed. Fungicides operate in a more local environment, and the mycelial growth of the Trichoderma follows the root exudates, operating in and influencing a far greater space than where originally applied.

We believe that the choice should no longer be an either / or approach to biological and conventional – but can also be Biological and Conventional.
