DSV introduces seed technology innovation
Jul. 11, 2017
DynaSeed is a new generation of seed treatment technology, explains the breeder. During the past few years the researchers at DSV developed a wide range of different methods and additives that boost the dynamics of the developing processes in plants and increase the resilience of plants to environmental conditions. For example, they significantly improve the overall emergence performance, including the germination rate and velocity as well as the handling properties of the product. DSV underlines that all DynaSeed products are thoroughly tested, offer a visibly extra value and are harmless to the environment. The new formulations were verified by the German Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) and are listed in Germany’s official list of inputs that are approved for use in organic farming.
“At DSV, DynaSeed is a synonym for intelligent seed improvement. Enhancing the technology of seed with first-class genetic material is simply the next logical step we have to take as breeders”, comments DSV Vice Chairman Dr Axel Kaske.
The first users to benefit from the new product will be forage growers. According to DSV, all leguminosae in the COUNTRY Energy and Organic mixes are now treated with DynaSeed LegumeMaxx which offers a tailored combination of active substances that improve crop establishment and plant resilience as well as nitrogen bonding by Rhizobia while stimulating root growth. “DynaSeed technology leads to resilient crops, a measurable increase in yields and an effectively higher added value for our customers,” explains Willi Pütter, Forage Crop Product Manager. He continues: “DynaSeed is instrumental in our long-term efforts to help farmers obtain stable yield levels in a great variety of climates and conditions.
DSV anticipates good business also in the turf grasses market, where it offers very effective products that improve germination rates and establishment. There have already been very successful results in the area of greenkeeping, such as football stadiums.
The product DSV TurfPearls® is an absolute innovation in the turf grasses market, says the company. Its special seed coat offers multiple advantages for effective and fast establishment as well as easier sowing.
