Benefits of SapoNite
SapoNite improves water and nutrient intake, and the speed and success of seed germination. SapoNite enhances imbibition in seeds and then acts as a metabolic stimulant to trigger germination.

Small vegetable and flower seeds: 0.5-1.0Kg/tonne.
SapoNitemay be tumbled with slightly pre-moistened seed to give a good overall covering. It may also be mixed with other seed coating products and incorporated into clay based commercial seed coatings. Do not use any process that requires temperatures above 35°C.
