Becker Underwood, Inc.,
a global leader in inoculants and seed enhancement technology
including the manufacturing of seed colorant and coating
products, announces a major development in plantability
technology with the debut of Flo Rite® polymer technology for
Flo Rite 1127 is the second product of the Flo Rite
technology platform, following Flo Rite 1085 for corn. Flo
Rite 1127 was developed to enhance the plantability of
soybeans that have been treated with various seed treatments.
Flo Rite 1127, when added to commercial seed treatments,
improves plantability, seed flow in seed treatment equipment,
seed coverage, appearance, and reduces dust-off of actives
during and after the seed treatment process.
Flo Rite 1127
is also an inoculant (rhizobia) friendly formulation, so
inoculants such as Vault® and NOD+™ may be added to the slurry.
The unique properties of Flo Rite 1127 allow it to be
added with active seed treatment components, inoculants, and
Color Coat™ Red or Blue directly in the mix tank and applied
simultaneously. Talc or additional polymers are not required
during application, but Becker Underwood always advocates
following planter equipment manufacturer guidelines.
Becker Underwood is excited to introduce this new product to the
market this season.
