Available with the Envirogro seed treatment process

The Envirogro seed treatment process gives PGG Wrightson Seeds tropical and subtropical seed varieties a better start. Envirogro is a tailored process, that cleans, treats, and improves the bare seed count and purity of tropical, subtropical grasses and legumes.

If the species requires, the bare seed is taken through a process of de-hulling leaving only the caryopses, before being coated and cleaned again to achieve high purity. 

Envirogro benefits

  • Coated with insecticide, polymer and talc/lime
  • Improved seed flowability and ballistic properties
  • Improves seed quality and purity
  • Increases bare seed count for a higher return on investment
  • Produces a clean, uniform seed
  • Reduced risk of establishment failure 
  • Removes seed husk from the caryopsis (if required)
  • Removes weed seed, waste material and contaminants
