Enhances pollen development, anther dehiscence, pollen hydration, and fertilization.
Attract more bees and keep them busy with more viable pollen on more plants. Active Seed™ contains nutrients and a polyamine complex to enhance events leading to flowering, pollination and fertilization of crops, resulting in increased yield.
When to Use
5% – 20% of hemp crop’s bloom stage.
Active Seed™ provides nutrients, polyamines and organic acids that support and enhance plant fertility. It improves pollen hydration, germination, pollen tube growth and viability, and encourages bee foraging activity which increases fertilization. Plants produce more fruit sets and an increased number of larger and uniform pods and seeds, ultimately resulting in greater yields.

How it Works
Active Seed contains nitrogen in the form of amine and micronutrients to maintain high enzymatic and hormonal activity during the reproductive phase of plant growth. Potassium is provided to regulate anther dehiscence, pollen hydration/imbibition, and pollen tube growth, needed for successful fertilization, and to promote uniform fruit size and quality. Easy to absorb and penetrate through membranes where it is needed, a boron-amine complex fosters pollen viability, seed set, carbohydrate and nucleic acid metabolism, cell differentiation and maturity, sugar transport, uptake of calcium, magnesium, potassium, synthesis of cytokinins, translocation of auxins, and root tip initiation. The polyamine complex aids in pollen germination, hydration, viability, pollen tube growth, accumulation of secretory vesicles in pollen tubes, and fertility. It also attracts bees, minimizes abortive flowers, and increases yield.
Science & Research
INCREASED POLLEN TUBE GROWTH: Active SEED contains nitrogen, potassium, and polyamine complex which support pollen tube growth and accumulation of secretory vesicles in pollen tubes.
INCREASED FERTILIZATION: Active SEED helps regulate anther dehiscence and pollen hydration, and increases pollen volume and viability.
INCREASED VOLUME AND SIZE OF FRUIT SETS, PODS, AND SEEDS: Active SEED increases the fertilization and also supports carbohydrate and nucleic acid metabolism, sugar transport, cell differentiation and maturation, resulting in a higher volume of larger, uniform, high quality fruits, pods, and seeds.
INCREASED BEE VISITATIONS: Polyamines present in Active SEED help attract bees, resulting in greater fertilization and minimal abortive flowers.
INCREASED NUTRIENT MOBILIZATION AND ABSORPTION: Active SEEDboosts the uptake of calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
INCREASED PERFORMANCE UNDER STRESS CONDITIONS: Active SEED benefits are unaffected by unfavourable conditions, maintaining its ability to simultaneously upregulate desirable pathways and downregulate undesirable pathways, allowing plants to maximize their genetic potential under cold, wet or drought conditions.
Compatible with most fungicides, herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers. Please see Compatibility Chart and conduct pre-testing if combination has not been previously used. Always do a jar test with pesticides and spray water to ensure compatibility as water quality can vary.
