PATENTED & FUTURE PROOF
SEED TREATMENT
FOR CEREALS

Improving resilience at all phases of growth.

FUTURE PROOF WITHOUT CONSTRAINTS

GRAINGUARD:
STRESS RESISTANT UNTIL HARVEST.

Promoting resilience in all phases of growth: GRAINGUARD is an intelligent combination of over 20 natural active ingredients and nutrients specially adapted to cereals and ensures synergetic effects based on the patented seedFX® technology. This creates optimal conditions for stable yields.

More than 260 trials since 2018 confirm the performance of GRAINGUARD:

  • STESS RESISTANT CROP
    Stress-resistant crop development in all growth phases – the best prerequisites for assured yield stability (+ 4% additional yield)!

  • STRONGER YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
    An optimal start with reliable germination, increased shoot vigour (+ 3.2%) and improved field emergence (+ 7%) ensures stronger shoots and good ear establishment!

  • MORE EFFICIENT USE OF RESOURCES
    Increased root mass (+25%) and surface area ensure more efficient tapping and use of resources (immobile nutrients, water) - for greater resilience, even under drought stress!

GRAINGUARD is applicable as a seed treatment for winter and summer cereals.
GRAINGUARD is ready to use and can be stored for at least 12 months, whether on the seed or in the canister.

GRAINGUARD and GRAINGUARD Bio are compliant with current EU directives.
GRAINGUARD Bio is listed for organic farming in Germany.

APPLICATION RATES AND HANDLING

GRAINGUARD

Application rates
For professional seed processing: 350 ml/100 kg seeds· 426 g/100 kg seeds (undiluted)
For alternative seed treatment processes: 420 ml/100 kg seeds· 496 g/100 kg seeds (diluted, +20 % water)

Instructions for handling
The application rate of GRAINGUARD must be adjusted depending on the seed processing technique used and the mixture with other pickling agents.

Stir with a suitable agitator for at least 30 minutes before use and also ensure homogenization during use. The same applies before transfer to a premixing tank. For the recommendation of a suitable agitator, please contact the manufacturer.

If GRAINGUARD will be applied with other components such as fungicides, it is advisable to apply in two steps, the additional component first and then GRAINGUARD after a short pickling period. Thus, it is possible to overpickle already pretreated seed without any problems. In this case, aspiration must be used and loose components must be removed by suitable technology before the pickling process. If you are interested in a combined application with common seed dressings, please contact the manufacturer.

It is essential that GRAINGUARD is evenly applied on the seed. Batch seed dressers with perfect function are best suited for this purpose. Seed treatment with GRAINGUARD should only take place in clean equipment that is not contaminated with other seed dressing residues. Please also check the proper application from time to time during the running process.

When changing from or to GRAINGUARD, the dosing equipment must be sufficiently rinsed with water. If solvent-based seed dressings are used, isopropanol should also be used for rinsing before and after the use of such products. Residues from seed treatments must be disposed of properly. To prevent frost damage, GRAINGUARD must be completely removed from the metering unit and replaced with a suitable antifreeze agent if necessary. Opened product must be tightly sealed and the original labels retained to avoid confusion of seed treatments and/or dressings and contamination. After prolonged storage, the product must be intensively stirred and/or pumped over. Please observe the storage and shelf life instructions.

SCIENCE & PRACTICE

RESULTS WITH GRAINGUARD

The data are based on 260 trials since 2018, including both plot and strip trials conducted by the SEEDFORWARD itself, by trial facilities or in cooperation with farmers.

All values averaged based on own and independent trials, compared to check without GUARD product, depending on seed, soil and environmental factors. As of: 04/2023

seedFX® TECHNOLOGY

Patented formulation with crop-specific additives.

The patented seedFX® technology represents the core of our GUARD product line. The complex formulation of our seed treatments is composed of over 20 natural active ingredients and nutrients, supplemented by crop-specific additives.

The individual interaction of the interlinked active ingredients and nutrients, using the resulting synergetic effects of seedFX® technology extends throughout the entire growing season. Already at swelling and germination, the basis for the successive effects is laid, reflected in the young plants' development and the yield formation up to the harvest.

Through intensive research and development activities, the concentration of the basic formulation is adapted to specific crops and supplemented with additional additives. This means that every GUARD product based on the seedFX® technology is individually tailored to the target crop.

Amino acids (Am): Increase stress tolerance, improved metabolic processes and photosynthesis, stimulation of the soil microbiome | Organic acids (Or): Improvement of germination capacity, hormone regulation, nutrient mobilisation | Secondary plant compounds (Sp): Reduction of oxidative stress, hormone-like effect, improved cell division | Humic substances (Hu): Hormone-like effect, improved root development, increased nutrient uptake | Hygroscopic substances and surfactants (Hy): Faster and more uniform seed swelling | Micronutrients (Mi): Building blocks of important enzymes, control of enzyme activity, improvement of immune response | Macronutrients (M): Kick-start package for the early stages of development

Our formulation expertise and rigorous laboratory and field testing ensure compliance with all technical specifications from seed preparation to sowing (e.g. Heubach values, sow ability and flowability).

CROP SPECIFIC MODE OF ACTION GRAINGUARD

Increased photosynthesis rate

The mutually reinforcing effects of GRAINGUARD are particularly evident in the increase of the photosynthesis rate. The hormone-like effect of the humic substances and secondary plant compounds contained in GRAINGUARD influences, among other things, the leaf position of the young cereals, so that they are more planophilic (more horizontal) in the first stages of development, which has a positive effect on photosynthesis. Together with the increased leaf area index, which is based, among other things, on improved metabolic processes and thus stronger shoot growth, the photosynthesis rate is again increased.

More vital and high-yielding shoots

Based on the increased photosynthesis rate, the amino acids and micronutrients contained in GRAINGUARD have a positive effect on the enzymatic activity and plant metabolic performance of the crop. GRAINGUARD promotes tillering as well as the formation of stronger and more vital shoots. In addition, ear formation is supported due to better nutrient utilisation in the shoots.

Increased nutrient efficiency through more roots

The secondary plant substances contained in GRAINGUARD specifically induce root formation. In combination with the humic substances contained, the enzyme activity in the root cells is stimulated. As a result, nutrients can be better absorbed through the root hairs of the cereal plants. Due to the more pronounced root system and the increased root mass, the plant can thus absorb more nutrients from all rooted soil layers.
