Securus Seed Enhancement

Securus is a proprietary seed coating that improves the appearance, handling and agronomics of seed products. Securus seed coatings deliver uniform coverage and market-leading durability.

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 bacteria friendly and pH neutral, supporting high rhizobia levels and ensuring optimum on-seed survival. Securus may include the precise layering of inoculant, fungicide and other growth promoting additives.
