Becker Underwood, Inc., a leader in inoculants and seed enhancement technology including the manufacturing of seed colorant and coating products, announces a major development in plantability technology with the expansion of the Flo Rite polymer technology for soybeans.

Flo Rite 1127 Concentrate for soybeans is the newest product of the Flo Rite technology platform, replacing Flo Rite 1127. Flo Rite 1127 Concentrate contains the benefits of Flo Rite 1127 plantability polymer in a more concentrated formula. Flo Rite 1127 Concentrate was developed to enhance the plantability of soybeans that have been treated with various seed treatments. When added to commercial seed treatments, Flo Rite 1127 Concentrate, improves plantability, seed flow in seed treatment equipment, seed coverage, appearance, and reduces dust off of actives during and after the seed treatment process. Flo Rite 1127 Concentrate has unique properties that allow it to be added with active seed treatment components, inoculants, and Color Coat colorants directly in the mix tank and applied simultaneously. Talc or additional polymers are not required during application, but Becker Underwood always advocates following planter equipment manufacturer guidelines. In addition, Flo Rite 1127 Concentrate is an inoculant (rhizobia) friendly formulation, so inoculants like Vault LVL or VAULT NP may be added to the slurry.

Becker Underwood is excited to introduce this new product to the market this season.
