AgRho® S-Boost
by Solvay

Description

The solution favors water and nutrients uptake, boosts germination and ultimately increases yield. S-boost is extracted from a leguminous plant, and its result is chemically modified by a double substitution reaction that ensures the agronomic benefit while posing no potential hazard to the environment. Its application requires the combination with other traditional ingredients typically used to protect the seed. As opposed to pesticides or other compounds derived plant hormones, its action is not biological nor systemic; it is based on a modification of the seedling’s environment that starts developing just after germination. On the one hand, the application of the product guarantees very low doses per hectare (only a few grams that biodegrade in 6 to 8 months).
