Formulation
FLOWSAN® FS contains selected polymers and pigments which give its outstanding properties to the formulation.

The polymers allow the product to be maintained onto the seed in all types of conditions. They avoid the formation of dust during handling and repacking of treated seeds, and they maintain the active ingredient in the surrounding of the seeds after sowing.

The treated seeds can be stored from one year to the next; FLOWSAN® FS protects the seeds during storage and does not have negative effect on the germination of the seeds.
