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, canola, corn, barley, oat, flax, sunflower, and vegetable seeds.
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.
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
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.

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.
