Andrew Powell from Pioneer joined Rural Exchange to discuss the exciting new cutting-edge LumiGEN™ System Seed Treatment that is the first of its kind to be released in New Zealand.
“There’s a lot of innovation coming through in the seed treatment space,” he told RadioLIVE.
The new seed treatment will include improved fungicides, which will help farmers manage resistance.
Mr Powell said a change in the polymer used will help farmers get a “more uniform, sort of picket fence looking maize crop”.
In addition, the new treatment is to include a biological stimulant which Mr Powell explains will provide protection to the established maize plant’s root systems.
