Kuraray’s solutions in seed coatings help make every seed count. Our polyvinyl alcohol resins keep seeds safe and help to ensure germination only when conditions are right across all factors lending more flexibility to a farmer’s planting season. Fertilizers, fungicides, and pesticides bound to the seed by the coating support growth, reducing the quantity of chemicals required, and improving safety for both humans and the environment. These coatings also protect the seeds from damage during handling, improve planting precision, and reduce dust.
