Iowa-based Albaugh's BIOST system has been tested to enhance performance when combined with traditional synthetic seed treatment chemistries, and follows several years of development, it says.

Its director of seed treatments for North America Chris Zita said: "The BIOST platform of biological products will be used to enhance our current portfolio of synthetic chemistries and will raise the bar in seed treatment performance for our customers." "

The company's director of global proprietary products Chad Shelton said: "Albaugh is committed to the sound science that helped establish this exciting new biological seed treatment platform and to help the seed industry and growers capture the benefits of biological seed treatment products."

Biological seed treatment lead Jay Stroh added: "Our goal three years ago was to identify a wide array of biological seed treatment active ingredients and bring them under one umbrella brand for our customers to access and supply to the market."
