History of SOESP ADVANCED
SOESP ADVANCED was founded in 2011 to produce high-quality seeds which meet the needs of farming systems improved by research and investments. These outstanding seeds also satisfy the requirements of environmental laws and provide high productivity, which are two things that the consumer market demands.
SOESP ADVANCED was born from a partnership between SOESP and Alcobering, a company that shares the same desire to improve agricultural products through technology. By way of its technology protected seeds, SOESP ADVANCED leaves an important legacy to the agricultural sector.
Benefits of SOESP ADVANCED
High purity - All seeds destined for SOESP ADVANCED coating have a purity level of about 98%.
Improved plantability/uniformity – The uniformity of SOESP ADVANCED seeds results in high plantability no matter what form of seeding is used. Whether the sowing is by broadcasting, an in-line precision planter, vacuum planter or even aerial, SOESP ADVANCED seeds land where they are need to be because they do not have the drift that uncoated seeds have. These seeds can be used in both mechanized and manual sowing mechanisms. The high-quality coating on the seeds encourages even distribution of the seeds by decreasing clumping and is always efficient because it is not harmed by the friction of the seeder.
Resistant Coating - Coating seeds protects them until they are well established. Thanks to an innovative formula, SOESP’s ADVANCED coating is not damaged by the friction of seeding machinery which guarantees the effectiveness of the products in the coating.
An insecticide and two fungicides in the coating – These products reduce the need of agrochemicals by protecting the seeds from birds and ants, as well as fungi during storage and in the soil.
Resistant to water stress - In situations where there is insufficient rain or outright drought, the seed maintains its quality and only germinates when there is a sufficient water to develop fully.
Ideal for Integrated Crop-Livestock-Forest (ICLF) Systems: The qualities that we have already considered, especially high plantability and uniformity, make these forage seed ideally suited for intercropping. They can easily be planted between rows of corn by adding a third box to the seeder or by simple broadcasting. Planting forage around coffee prevents erosion on sloped land and raising forage for straw before planting a crop of soybeans optimizes tillage. Forage can also be planted around eucalyptus trees to improve animal performance and diversify crops. The ICLF system generates many benefits. The roots of the forage grass (for example: Brachiaria Ruziziensis) improve the soil’s quality, the cycling of nutrients is encouraged, organic matter increases, and the need for agrochemicals decreases. The ICLF system also provides economic benefits by generating more income and protecting agricultural producers from market fluctuations.
