Seed coating enhances Nitrogen assimilation
Key to any growth enhancer applied as a seed treatment is that it impacts plant metabolism at a very basic level. Farmers are very aware that excessive application of N fertilizer hurts their profit margins. They also understand that yield penalties associated with inadequate nitrogen can be much larger. A balance between these two sides means that plants must become increasingly efficient in nitrogen assimilation.
