Convenience and stability

Yellow Jacket Rhizobium coated lucerne seed offers convenience and stability, easing your worries about roughage production. 

Convenience and stability

Working convenience

Yellow Jacket Rhizobium coated seed is a ready-touse product, saving you a lot of work. Moreover, the distribution of the Rhizobium bacteria around the seed is much more even than when mixed manually.

Long shelf life

Yellow Jacket Rhizobium bacteria survive well in the coating, ensuring longer storage so the seed can be saved for the next sowing period.

Improved establishment

Coated seed is heavier than uncoated seed, which improves contact with the soil after sowing. Moreover, the seed coating will attract and retain moisture, enabling the crop to establish better compared to crops from uncoated seed.


Tip-top nutrition and acidity

Yellow Jacket Rhizobium seed coating contains essential nutrients and trace elements that feed the seedlings and enhance the effect of the Rhizobium bacteria. Lime (CaCO3) from the coating maintains the pH value around the roots.


High yield

Various tests by Barenbrug Research demonstrate that the yield of lucerne coated with Yellow Jacket Rhizobium seed coating is higher during many years than the yield of uncoated seed, resulting in a higher roughage yield and, consequently, more milk per hectare.

 

Establisment and dry matter yield

A trial at Barenbrug Research in the Netherlands demonstrated the benefits of Yellow Jacket coated seed in terms of establishment, ground cover and especially forage yield at the start. (hier horen de grafieken op pagina 9 bij)
