BASF Introduces Flo Rite Pro 02 plantability polymer


RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., November 27, 2023 – BASF Agricultural Solutions is introducing the next level of seed coating with Flo Rite® Pro 02 plantability polymer. Flo Rite Pro 02 uses advanced polymer-based technology to combine adhesion properties with exceptional seed flow helping to provide maximum yield potential. 


Seed singulation and uniform spacing are critical to yield, and with the size of today’s planters, seeds are required to travel long distances at high speeds to achieve uniform spacing. Flo Rite Pro 02 has been developed by BASF specifically to maximize seed flow, optimizing singulation, seed spacing and plant population to help increase yield potential. 


Flo Rite products are compatible with major fungicides, insecticides, nematicides and can be easily blended with any Color Coat product by BASF. In addition, the visual appearance of Flo Rite Pro 02 on corn is glossier and shinier than the industry standard. 


Flo Rite Pro 02 was specifically developed for stewarding Clothianidin products, with dry flowability improved across all Clothianidin rates. Dust levels on corn averaged less than 0.2 grams of dust per 100,000 seed.
