1. WASP (Water Absorbing Seed Process) is the very latest technical development of a coating used successfully for many years this is the very latest 7th formulation.

2. This is the latest innovation in seeds technology that offers for the first time a complete provision for the new turf seedling with water and nutrient. A reservoir of moisture from the coating ensures that the seedling cannot dry up and has a permanent water supply. Moreover this coating also contains a start off fertilisation for the first growth stages of the seedlings development. Other activators are included for good plant health and good root development

3. Water is life - through the WASP coating, one can make available the water/moisture and the nutrients required for good quick growth.

The additional water supply created by the WASP visibly affects the growth of the seedling and also the roots of the turfgrass. One can especially see the extra growth in times of extreme stress conditions such as drought for example as well as in difficult soil conditions or harsh climatic conditions.

4. Not only can WASP be used on new sowing areas its ideal for over sowing and renovating as its not likely that seed treated with WASP will be out crowded due to the rapid emergence offered by WASP.

The seedling germination is also more uniform and regular when treated with WASP rather than untreated seed trials.

5. The treated seed coating sowing swells when it comes into water contract this can be clearly seen in the photos above and functions therefore as a reservoir acting as a contained supplier of moisture for the seed
