Seed performance can be improved by pre-sowing treatments (seed enhancement)
with different factors such as light, plant growth substances such as photo-hormones and humic acids. During the period from
1997 to 2005 we have done great number of trials on seeds of vegetables, cereals, floricultural and technical crops in many
countries of the world such as Canada, USA, Russia, China, Netherlands, the United Kingdom and France.
Our studies showed that seeds treated
with certain combinations of organic and mineral compounds as well as light increased the percentage of germination and vigour
of seedling growth. New established technology has a number of merits and can be easily applied in the practice for seed enhancement.
Competing technologies for increasing seed germination rates are currently limited to chemical treatment only that is not
suitable for growing plants organically. Application of light, humates, mineral elements and other naturally occurring products
for seed enhancement can be considered as “natural” for pre-sowing treatment of seeds.
About 200,000 HEINZ tomato seeds have
been treated with my lighting system, and then taken to space by Marc Garneau to be tested for germination in 2500 classrooms
across Canada in a National Education Event –“Tomatosphere”: Food for Sustaining life in Space in 2000-2001.
seed enhancement technology can be very profitable due to high prices of hybrid seeds and cultivation of the transplant production.
Power of SEED Inc. would welcome your interest in a potential partnership introducing our
technology to the marketplace.
