Field evaluation of one seed treatment inducing multiple agronomic responses from emergence to yield

This project builds on the findings from previous ADF project on the positive effect of recently developed, inexpensive, one-time seed treatment on early seed germination, seedling establishment and enhanced root development in spring. These are the critical factors for increasing yield through advanced flowering and avoidance of heat/drought stress in mid-summer in multiple crops
