Seeds coated with ProNitro® save you time and establish much faster. You sow and fertilise your seeds in a single, efficient action. And since the nitrogen fertiliser in the ProNitro® coating is coated on the seed, nothing goes to waste. Your nitrogen feeds your seed, not the weeds that surround it.

ProNitro® is good for all types of playing surfaces. On golf greens and football pitches in low-fertility, sandy soils, ProNitro® provides faster establishment. Sports fields sown with ProNitro® become playable sooner, while sod/turf producers obtain an earlier product containing less Poa annua. Click here to read chief scientific officer, Klaus K. Nielsen, explain why ProNitro® can give you an extra 30 to 50 playing hours as well as save you time and money.
Although the concept of coating grass seed with fertiliser is not new, ProNitro® goes much further. It contains a combination of fast-acting and slow-releasing nitrogen that feeds the seed and seedling throughout the first crucial month. Tests show that the leaching of nitrogen is far less with ProNitro® than with regular grass seed and a standard fertiliser.
With its 10% nitrogen content, ProNitro® is also far more effective. In comparison, the nitrogen content of existing seed coatings is typically between 1% and 2%, which is why the effects are often negligible.
Very little goes to waste with ProNitro®. The nitrogen in the coating goes directly to your germinating seeds and developing seedlings. Roots and shoots grow rapidly; the seedlings become strong and vigorous. Rapid growth improves the take-up of all available soil nutrients and decreases nutrient losses into the environment by fixation or leaching. This is especially relevant when overseeding a competitive sward.
Tests by the Sports Turf Research Institute show that grass establishes significantly better with coated grass seed. Up to 34% more plants survive the establishment phase, creating a denser sward. These plants also have more than 30% longer roots compared to untreated seeds, resulting in better stress-tolerance.
