Securus is a proprietary seed coating that improves the appearance, handling and agronomics of seed products. Securus seed coatings deliver market-leading durability and improved seed flow with less dust-off.

The Securus carrier is talc which is a naturally occurring mineral that is highly stable, chemically inert and odorless. Talc has a plate-like cellular structure that more effectively adheres to seed. Better adhesion means improved flowability and less dust-off.  Securus is also bacteria friendly and pH neutral, ensuring optimum on-seed survival of rhizobia inoculants.
