Abstract

This three-year study was designed to study the effects polymer-coated corn seed on emergence and yield. The coating technology used was the Intellicoat® Early Plant seed coating technology. Intellicoat is derived from natural, biodegradable fatty acids, which act as temperature-sensitive switches. Thus, when soil temperatures warm above 55°F for several days, the polymer allows water to permeate the seed and germination to proceed.
