DeltAg Seed Coat is a nutrient rich fertilizer. It is formulated utilizing a proprietary chemistry developed and utilized in row-crop agriculture since 1988. We utilize a combination of vitamins, amino acids, enzymes and natural plant extracts, in combination with specific nutrients and a proprietary organic complex for enhanced uptake and movement throughout the growing plant. Seed Coat contains no pesticides or hormones and is environmentally friendly.
Seed Coat will has been proven for many years to enhance seed emergence, grow off, and survival. Most crops will go through a stress period in the early days after emergence. Plants struggle to emerge from the ground and expend a lot of energy in doing so. Typically, after emergence, they rest, or regroup. This period is referred to as a ‘lag phase’. This is when the plant is most susceptible to stress from the environment. This stress can be caused by lack of moisture, too much moisture, too cold, too hot, compacted soil and many other weather related factors. Once the stress sets in, the young plants become susceptible to diseases and growth slows and a thin or stunted crop can be the result. Seed Coat is specifically designed to give the young plant more energy to get emerged and out of the ground. The more energy the plant has, the quicker it gets up and growing and the less time there is in this lag phase for susceptibility to stress and disease.

Bought the big bucket of Seed Coat. Have been using it for several years now on all types of seeds. Seed Coat definitely helps, but if the weather or soil conditions are not right, only so much can be expected. Planted grain rye just before a week of semi wet weather. 3" tall in one week. Worked great on this year's food plots planted in newly cut clear cuts. Planted a mix of seed rye, winter peas, crimson clover, turnips and kale. Did it right this time with quick lime on new ground, proper fertilizer and Seed Coat. All plots coming up well. I will surely buy another bucket of seed coat if I ever use this one up. That stuff goes a long way and works great.
My husband and I used the Seed Coat with a late fall food plot planted last September in the DRY, DRY, DRY Texas Lower Panhandle/Plains area. Our ranch had only gotten three inches of rain over the previous 13 month period, had summer temps of 100+ for almost 75 days, and super high winds, but even with the massive drought and unfavorable conditions, the seeds sprouted within 8 days of planting on the test plot we used the Seed Coat on. We planted another plot on a section of the ranch where we used untreated seeds and that area had actually had gotten more rain (sometimes parts of the ranch will get rain when the others don't since it's so big) Well, that food plot sprouted as well but the plants looked stunted, with spindly, weak stems and were just never healthy. Also the plot with the Seed Coat seeds sprouted 11 days sooner than the one untreated despite the fact the untreated ones were planted in ground with more moisture deep in the soil. We were very lucky that about a month after we planted, the ranch FINALLY started getting rain, and we've now had almost 4 inches since late October. Even with the rain, the plot started with the Seed Coat treated seeds was still much fuller and healthier looking than the other, and despite the fact the seeds were the exact same mix, (Hell, from the same bag!) the plants in the Seed Coat plot ended up a good 6-8" taller than the untreated one. The deer can tell a difference as well, mowing down the Seed Coat test plot, and just picking around the other like a finicky kid pushing their veggies around a plate. We actually started seeing some of our bucks we keep track of who live on the part of the ranch with the untreated plot move almost 35+ acres over to the treated one. And they usually don't move very far on the ranch. Apparently the gossip reached them that life "really was greener on the other side of the fence" Haha! Finally the hogs moved in and started eating on the weaker one, but throughout deer season it went almost untouched by the deer. We are very pleased with Seed Coat and plan on using it every time we plant in the future. Thanks for a such wonderful product!

I used the seed coat for the first time this past planting season. It helped decrease the amount of seed that was used and increased the actual germination by 40 to 50%. The crops were complimented by all who seen them. The other deer hunting clubs are wanting to know what I did to have the fields that I did with the sucess through a drout like condition. My fields were blue green and full. You couldn't have asked for niceier food plots. The weather was warmer this year than normal so we had alittle different type of season than we normallly do but the fields still were very active. Our sister clubs didn't have this reaction. We've been told by other clubs that their season was dramatically effected by the warmer tempratures and drout. One business that we stop in was a buzz about "What is our club doing?' we shared all the secrets of the fields with them. Everyone building good herds benefits all of us.
I have been planting anywhere from 5 to 25 acres of deer and turkey food plots each year for approximately 20 years. I believe I have tried just about every form of food plot seed available including from wheat, oats, various clovers, brassica, rape, turnips, etc. I have been using Seed Coat for 5 or 6 years when I plant these plots as well as when I overseed or renovate my pastures and hay fields with various kinds of grass seeds. I have experienced a marked improvement to the germination rate and survival rate of the young plants when I use Seed Coat - particular with smaller seeds such as clover or brassica. I also believe it is a great contributor to healthy stands being produced from Fall plantings when I often have the risk that 1) my plots dry out if I encounter dry conditions in September, 2) my plots produce less if I encounter early cold weather which shortens the growing season, and/or 3) my plots are overgrazed by the greater number of deer present in the Fall. With the number of deer that I have in the Fall it is a great benefit if I can get the plants out of the ground in greater number and growing vigorously as quickly as possible. I believe Seed Coat is a major contributor to accomplishing this goal. I believe Seed Coat is a benefit to the Spring plantings for the same reasons but do not necessarily have the same importance only because the weather conditions are more favorable as the young plants mature and I have fewer deer at that time. I highly recommend the product with any planting. I regard the cost of the product as purchasing insurance that I will have productive, beneficial food plots every year.

I tested it out on 2 food plots, the 2 we planted with DeltAg Seed Treatment and 3 we did not in the same soil type. It was a Sandy Lome Soil. The DeltAg Seed Coat crop came up in 2 days after a rain. The uncoated food plot was 6 days. We sprayed a liquid fertilizer on the untreated crop to give it a boost. The DeltAg Seed Coat we added no fertilizer. Both matured at the same time. So we found that the DeltAg Seed Coat was well worth the investment and made a strong healthy food plot without extra fertilizer. Both matured at the same time. So we found that the DeltAg Seed Coat was well worth the investment and made a strong healthy food plot without extra fertilizer. We plan to use it on all of our crops this season. We plant and maintain over 100 food plots for Ducks, Turkey and Deer with 7 different soil types. We are always testing different applications for best costs results and DeltAg has proven to be an added support to expand our work efforts and save us money.

I have been using your product now going on 4 seasons. I plant wildlife food plots for deer in the spring and fall. I can not tell you that 100% it is Seed Coat that makes my plots germinate faster, better, and greenier, but I can tell you I wll never plant another food plot without using Seed Coat! in Georgia where sometimes rainfall is a problem, Seed Coat seems to save the Day! I guess what I am trying to say is Seed Coat works, Seed Coat is great, yes I use Seed Coat and always will from now on!
My husband and I first heard about your product at a leadership meeting held by the National Wild Turkey Federation in Edgefield SC about 6 years ago, and they gave us a sample and of course we bought enough Seed Coat to use for our plot. We only have a 3/4 acre yard and half of it is a food plot we plant for the deer. Now unless you have tried your product, no one will believe me that without fail the seeds are busting through on the third day, no more than four days after planting. We try to plant when we know there is rain in the forecast and if not we put on the sprinkler. We live in the Panhandle of Florida, just 54 miles west of Tallahassee. Our property is what they call the sand ridges of the county and trust me nothing grows except palmetto bushes on it's own without help. We won't plant another food plot or anything with out using your products. And yes, it has helped my fruit trees and the oak tree seems to bare more acorns. I promise you before my husband turns one row of out plot, I ask him do you have the Seed Coat? You know when something really works when you don't mind spreading the news.
General: 2-4 ounces per acre
Food Plots & Gardens: 4 ounces per 50 pounds of seed
Vegetables: Typical rate is 1 to 2 ounces per acre
Small Seed Packets: ½ teaspoon per packet
It is very difficult to overdose because only so much will adhere to the seed surface and surplus product will go to the ground or into the air. A very small amount goes a long way to cover seed. The more agitation, the more seed the product will cover.
Frequently Asked Questions:
A: Seed Coat is a dry powdered seed treatment, applied the day you plant, that helps get more plants up and out of the ground with much quicker and healthier growth.
Q: What is in Seed Coat?
A: A proprietary combination of micronutrients and nutrient catalysts.
Q: How does Seed Coat work?
A: A proprietary plant has to produce amino acids and convert them to vitamins and enzymes before it can use nutrients. Seed Coat gives the young plant all these things as a boost to help get it going.
Q: How do I mix Seed Coat with the seed?
A: Simply SPRINKLE the Seed Coat over the seed in the bag, SHAKE the bag and POUR the bag into the planter, or SPRINKLE the Seed Coat over the seed in the hopper and STIR thoroughly. You are ready to PLANT!
Q: How much Seed Coat do I apply?
A: Apply 4 Ounces of Seed Coat per 50 pounds of seed or one (1) ounce per 10 to 12 pounds of seed.
A: No. Only so much will adhere to the seed. For optimum results, always follow label directions.
A: No. Seed Coat is all natural.
A: Indefinitely, provided you keep the container closed and the Seed Coat dry!
A: No. Bacterial inoculants should still be used when planting legumes.
A: Any Soil Type
Q: Will Seed Coat work in any weather conditions?
Q: What type seed can Seed Coat be applied on?
A: Any type seed, (grass seed, crop seed, vegetable seed)
A: 40 to 50% of the plant is under the ground and the root system is the life line of the plant. A healthier root system helps the plant survive when there are strong environmental aspects at play such as drought, unexpected cold weather, etc. The plant is able to survive longer, grow larger, and take more stress then what other plants take. It is also able to pull in more nitrogen, phosphorous, potash and other nutrients needed when it has a better root system. It's pretty simple. The root system is everything and our products help to produce the ultimate root system.
A: Absolutely Not! Although there are nutrients in the products, the main ingredients in each product are amino acids, enzymes, and vitamins. DeltAg utilizes a proprietary additive, Fulvore, to enhance the absorption and translocation of our primary ingredients. This combination of ingredients increases the plants metabolism and root system, which makes the plant healthier with better quality and production.
A: Yes. There are no harsh chemicals associated with the formulation of these products. They are nutrient based and should be handled as any other fertilizer materials.
A: DeltAg products perform on any soil, seed or plant. DeltAg products can be used in row crops, greenhouses, wholesale nurseries, gardens, house plant, lawns and turf, food plots, trees, and even native vegetation.
