Precision Laboratories Incorporated (Precision Laboratories), a US-based provider of specialized chemistries for agricultural industry, has introduced a new catalytic soybean seed treatment, ProSurge. The ProSurge helps double-crop soybeans manage variety of stresses, including excessive heat and drought conditions and nutrient deficiencies. The ProSurge helps to these stresses by maintaining essential cellular functions and preventing cell activity shutdown.

These stresses can slow down or completely stop the growth process as the plants employ their natural health defenses, working harder just to survive.

“Double-cropping soybeans are a valuable practice, as long as the risks are managed,” said Terry Culp, vice president of Seed Enhancement and Nutrients at Precision Laboratories. “Managing stress to promote healthy, vigorous plants is essential, and ProSurge provides the improved performance the plants need. It’s a stress management tool growers can economically employ to maximize profits.”

“ProSurge reduces much of the plant stress risk associated with double-crop soybeans,” said Rick Wohlner, president of Precision Laboratories. “It’s a proven product that helps growers realize a greater return on their investment.”

ProSurge combines a biocatalyst and a film-forming polymer to offer improved soybean plant stand, increased vigor and faster canopy closure, which result in higher yield.
