Does the seed wrap help the seed absorb moisture?
Yes, absorbed water is held near the seed.
Does the wrap help the seed germinate faster and cause more seeds to germinate and persist as healthy plants?
Though germination time is usually the same, you may notice emerged seedlings earlier. Because of better placement and protection from disease, a higher percentage of seed will germinate and grow. Super-Wrapping “makes every seed count.”
Does the wrap contain nutrients?
Yes, the wrap contains a nutrient source that will be readily available to the emerging seedling roots.
Does the wrap decrease the need for a fertilized planting area?
No, the Super-Wrapped nutrients will only be available to the seedling in its very early stages; it does not replace the need for a good starter fertilizer.
Does the wrap make planting easier and better?
Yes to both. Planting will be easier because there will be no need to bulk up seed with sand. Because wrapped seed are heavier and denser, they are thrown farther and more uniformly, thus producing a more uniform cover.
Does the wrap contain fungicide?
Yes, seed is coated with Apron for damping off and Pythium control in seedlings.
Does the wrap stimulate root growth?
Yes, the wrap contains a natural growth hormone.
