“Seed that has been covered by a layer(s) of materials that obscure the original shape and size of the seed resulting in a substantial weight increase. The coating or encrusting may contain biologicals, identifying colorants or dyes, pesticides, polymers and/or other ingredients.”
Encrustment is a thin layer of inert materials which creates a much smoother surface . This increases the weight and size of the seed. This gives planting more precision, which in result gives a more even crop stand.
The binders used by TeaL are free of intentionally added microplastics. The powders used for the encrustment are from natural components and 100% organic. All products used by TeaL are certified organic and can be used in organic and conventional farming.
