Seed Treatment - Product Superstrike Grass

Superstrike Grass seed treatment is recommended for spring and autumn grass sowings where Argentine Stem Weevil or Black Beetle pressure is likely to be a limiting factor during the establishment period. Superstrike Grass is a ‘flimcote’ seed treatment providing broad spectrum protection during plant establishment against three of the most prevalent and costly pasture pests in New Zealand.


Seed Treatment - Product Prillcote Grass

Prillcote® was the first seed coating product developed in New Zealand and was introduced to improve establishment of grass on New Zealand’s hill and high country. The lime based seed coating adds weight to the seed, providing superior seed ballistics in comparison to uncoated seed. Prillcote® is recommended for all grass seed established via aerial oversowing.


Seed Treatment - Product Ultrastrike Brassica

Ultrastrike Brassica is a broad spectrum ‘filmcote’ seed treatment that will provide establishing brassica seedlings with the most comprehensive protection package in the seed treatment market. Autumn sown crops and seed sown through no-tillage should also be protected with Ultrastrike because of the increased threat of insect pressure during establishment.
