General Information

Seed priming, or osmoconditioning, is a proven method for increasing the rate of seedling establishment through improved germination speed and uniformity. These benefits are more obvious under poor temperature and/or moisture conditions.

Seeds are soaked in an osmotic solution that draws water into the seeds to begin the germination process, but the process is stopped before completion. The primed seeds, when planted, are more likely to germinate than are untreated seeds because they are in a metabolically advanced state.
