Early plant health and nutrition benefits from PROTINUS include:
- Earlier and more even germination
- Increased root growth and development
- Greater plant growth and canopy development
- Enhanced ability to tolerate early season stress
- Better vigor
- Bigger yields
- Better return on investment
Earlier and more even germination
Getting a crop up and out of the ground is an important contributor to a successful crop. Rapid and uniform germination and emergence help set the stage for maximum grain yield at the end of the season. This can be a challenge under cool, wet, or dry seeding conditions that many crop regions face. PROTINUStreated seed demonstrates earlier and more consistent germination giving the crop a good, strong start.

Early plant growth
PROTINUS helps to increase early above-ground plant growth. Faster growth and greater plant mass can help young plants better compete with weeds, and ensures adequate canopy growth. Greater above-ground growth directly relates to the plant's ability to photosynthesize, and ultimately influences yield.
Enhanced Root Growth
Better early nutrition from PROTINUS leads to increases in root growth, helping the plant better forage for needed nutrients and moisture. Greater root mass also helps the plant cope with early stress, and resist lodging later in the season.

Better able to withstand early season challenges
PROTINUS-treated crops demonstrate a better start for the crop, even under sub-optimal conditions. The enhanced early nutrition, and greater and faster early growth helps young plants to thrive even under dry or cool conditions, which are frequently experienced in many crop growing regions.
