Pelleting and encrustment

Using the same patent-pending seed coating technology as SilviCoat Forester, SilviBio has developed formulations that can be used to form encrusted seed or pellets.  

 

The biobased, microplastic-free formulation contains moisture-retaining materials and can be adapted to incorporate any essential nutrients required by the seed.  

SilviCoat Forester

SilviCoat Forester is a novel, patent-pending biobased seed coating formulation with significant moisture-retaining properties.  It has been developed and formulated to create a water-swellable film on tree seeds.

 

Its key features include:

 

  • A thin-film seed coating for easy storage and sowing. 

  • A film coating that captures water and swells up to 50 times.

  • Sustainable, biopolymer-based formulation, providing an alternative to petroleum-based polymers currently used by the coating industry.

  • Biodegradable and microplastic-free.

  • Up to 40% improvement in germination in dry conditions.
