Description

Promotes germination with significantly greater root growth for hardier seedlings and increased yield.

Active Prime™ contains nutrients and bioactive molecules needed for your newly seeded crop to get off to a strong, healthy start. Active Prime is a seed coating that improves germination, boosts root growth, and protects seeds and seedlings from unfavourable environmental conditions. It fosters robust young plants primed to produce a greater yield.

When to Use

Prior to seeding wheat, corn, hops, canola, soybean, other pulses, tomatoes, and vegetables.

Benefits

Active Prime enhances the seeds’ ability to germinate and quickly produce more and stronger roots. This results in hardier seedlings, more capable of withstanding less than ideal environmental conditions. Ultimately, the increased number of robust plants, produces a higher crop yield.

For the best results, use the complete line of recommended Active AgriScience products for your crop.

  • Wheat: Active Prime, Active Build, Active Complete, Proform N, Active Konnect, Micronutrients as needed.
  • Corn, Hops: Active Prime, Active Build, Active Flower, Active Complete, Proform N, Micronutrients as needed.
  • Canola, Soybean, Pulses, Tomatoes, Vegetables: Active Prime, Active Build, Active Flower, Proform N, Active Konnect, Micronutrients as needed.

How it Works

Active Prime is a dressing applied to seeds before planting. It contains nutrients, organic acids, and Active AgriScience’s proprietary activation formula. Active Prime protects the seeds and allows the nutrients to be utilized, even in unfavourable conditions, producing an increased number of roots and deeper roots. This results in more robust seedlings, healthier plants, higher quality crops and greater yield.

Application Rate

Apply as a seed nutrient dressing to wheat, canola, corn, barley, oat, flax, sunflower, and vegetable seeds at the rate of 4 ml / kg of seed.

  1. Seed coating can be done simultaneously with Active Prime™ and compatible agrochemicals. If using Active Prime without additional agrochemicals, dilute with water (1:1 ratio) to ensure uniform coverage of seeds.
  2. Calibrate equipment to release the required amount of Active Prime and other agrochemicals based on seed flow rate.
  3. Thoroughly mix seeds with the Active Prime (and other agrochemicals) mixture. A colouring additive allows a visual check to ensure all seeds are uniformly coated.
  4. Allow treated seeds to air dry for 5-10 min before seeding.
  5. Application rates exceeding recommended rates can negatively affect seed germination. Always follow label directions.

Research

Science & Research

Enhanced Germination

Active Prime induces synthesis of zeatin, which is a cytokinin that promotes shoot growth, resulting in faster and higher rates of germination.

Stronger Root Growth

Active Prime induces the indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) pathway resulting in higher levels of IBA in tissues leading to earlier and quicker root growth and development. As a result, Active Prime treated plants are better able to maintain strong growth under drought stress

Reduced Transpiration

Active Prime helps increase xylem pressure through positive water potential, and enhanced elasticity of the xylem, and also helps to regulate stomatal function to reduce excess water loss.

Increased Water Use Efficiency

Active Prime inhibits both ethylene synthesis and free radical formation under drought conditions. Ethylene and free radicals destabilize plant membranes, through fluidization and lipid peroxidation, resulting in water leakage and quicker wilting. Active Prime treated plants have inherent resistance to these drought-induced changes with greater water use efficiency.

Increased Nutrient Mobilization and Absorption

Active Prime increases secretion of root exudates into the rhizosphere that increase bound nutrient mobilization, availability, and root interception. Active Prime treated plants also show increased uptake of nutrients mobilized by mass flow.

Increased Performance Under Stress Conditions

Active Prime has a simple molecular structure that allows for its activity to be unaffected by unfavourable conditions, and its ability to simultaneously up-regulate desirable pathways and down-regulate undesirable pathways allows plants to maximize their genetic potential under cold, wet or drought conditions.

Increased Function Under Wide Range of pH

Active Prime contains simple organic molecules that act as either weak acids or bases to pH buffer solutions. Therefore, its function and efficacy are preserved under various pH regimes.
