Unium have been a the forefront of biostimulant seed treatments for nearly 20 years, BOOST is a metabolite : nutrient complex designed to maximise seed germination, establishment, growth and development in a wide range of crops – cereals, maize, pulses, oilseed rape for example.

BOOST supports the growth and development of the young seedling as it emerges and establishes by maximising nitrogen and carbon metabolism along with providing key nutrients. BOOST is designed to :

  • Increase root and shoot biomass
  • Enhanced germination
  • Improved establishment
  • Increased overwintering tolerance
  • Increased stress tolerance

This will allow the crop to reach its maximum potential – we have to subsequently manage for that increased potential.

Our experience and expertise has created products that are 25+% better than the market leaders whilst striving for further improvements (Nottingham University 2017/2018).

  • Maximise green leaf area

  • Optimise ear numbers, grains/ear & yield

  • Increased yield response of 7% from 11 trials comparisons

  • Excellent return in investment 10 : 1 with a 91% chance of break-even or better performance

  • A unique metabolite : nutrient complex to maximise the performance of the seed drilled by maximising establishment and development

  • Liquid seed treatment for all crops

  • Nitrogen : carbon metabolism enhancing metabolite with nutrient complex

  • Consistent robust performance in trials and on farm evaluations

The metabolite complex coordinates nitrogen and carbon assimilation to set and maximise growth potential whist the nutrient blend supports the supply of additional nutrients required for establishment.

The product is easy to use at 1.0 l/tonne on all crops.
