Title (EN) A SEED-CONTAINING WATER IMBIBING UNIT AND METHODS UTILISING SAME
(FR) UNITE HYDROPHILE CONTENANT DES GRAINES VEGETALES ET PROCEDE D'UTILISATION DE CETTE UNITE
Abstract:
(EN) A dry formulation for the growth enhancement of a seed comprises various nutrients, growth hormones, pesticides, and other beneficial and protective agents for the seed confined therein, in a particulate mixture of polymers including water-insoluble polymers such as polyacrylamide with hydroxypropyl methyl-cellulose, which upon moisture contact by rainfall or other irrigation means starts to slowly hydrate and form a controlled release gel, enveloping the seed to provide a protective zone for moisture retention and slow release of assimilable nutrients during the period of germination and development of the seedling.
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à une composition sèche servant à améliorer la croissance d'une graine végétale, qui contient diverses substances confinées dans l'unité, telles qu'agents nutritifs, hormones de croissance, pesticides et autres agents bénéfiques et protecteurs pour la graine, dans un mélange particulaire composé de polymères, par exemple de polymères insolubles dans l'eau tels qu'un polyacrylamide, et de méthylcellulose hydroxypropyle et qui, après contact hydrique avec de l'eau de pluie ou avec de l'eau d'irrigation, commence à s'hydrater lentement, jusqu'à former un gel à libération régulée, qui enveloppe la graine afin de former une zone protectrice assurant la rétention de l'humidité et la libération lente des agents nutritifs assimilables pendant la période de germination et de développemnent du plant.
