SEED & SORB® Lawn seeds

Very high demands are placed on lawns in terms of load, care needs and appearance. In addition, there are sometimes difficult climatic and local conditions: wind swirls the seeds, an inadequate water supply and slightly permeable soil allow seeds that have just germinated to dry out.

Bare seeds must be invested in care, watering and fertilizer to ensure a satisfactory result.

Water in the coat

Coated seeds with water storage

GEFA Fabritz has developed the coated seed range SEED & SORB® with XXL water storage. The from SEED & SORB® seeds, encased in a coat of nutrients and STOCKOSORB®, absorb more moisture than conventional naked seeds and make it available for the young seedling. This is primarily thanks to the effective water storage system STOCKOSORB®. It ensures that plant-available water is stored in the coat. In addition, there is an increased absorption of nutrients guaranteed. The applied lawn seeds absorb the moisture from its surroundings (irrigation, Soil moisture, dew moisture) and is increasingly able to see this moisture through the absorber to tie.

Reduce effort

The higher weight of the SEED & SORB® seeds makes machine and manual sowing much easier. Gusts of wind do not affect the seeding pattern. The increased weight (due to Coat and increased moisture content) improves soil contact. The sward becomes thicker and better rooted.

This excellent starter supply can increase seed emergence by up to 50% compared to conventional lawn seeds. This significantly reduces the application rate. At the same time, the eye-catching red color of the coat makes the sowing pattern very good detect.

Test results

SEED & SORB® Test results

As part of a greenhouse experiment, both SEED & SORB® and conventional seeds were germinated in the quartz sand. In this series of tests, the seeds were exposed to extreme climatic conditions such as water stress, high temperatures and strong sunlight, in order to observe in particular the growth behavior after germination.

From the ninth day, the increase in length of both parts was determined. The conventional, untreated seeds could not withstand the extreme climatic conditions, dried up and died. SEED & SORB® was able to store the small amount of moisture better and thus withstood the extreme conditions.

Mycorrhiza for grass
Mycorrhiza for grass

GSS mycorrhiza for lawns Let your lawns become even greener and more durable with the special GEFA mycorrhiza for lawns. The fast-acting mycorrhizal fungi enlarge the root surface of grasses and thus convey more important nutrients and water to the lawn plants than would otherwise be the case. For this they get sugars from the grasses. This creates a community that has an extremely positive effect on the lawns.

Application rate: 20 ml / m²
