KURARAY POVAL™ PVOH resin is used to coat seeds to protect them and make sure they only germinate at the right temperature and humidity. For example, coating seeds with KURARAY POVAL™ improves germination at cool temperatures. In addition, KURARAY POVAL™ coatings prevent damage to the seeds during handling and prevent dust.
KURARAY POVAL™ coatings can also be used to apply fertilizers, insecticides and fungicides accurately to seeds. That enhances the germination and vigor of plants and their ability to become established. Seed coatings also reduce the amount of agrochemicals required, which increases safety and tolerability for people and the environment.
