About Our Seed Coating
Yellow Jacket is a proprietary seed coating from Barenbrug that utilizes a super-absorbent technology, creating a seed capable of holding up to 600 times its own weight in water. With this level of water retention, PastureRX can withstand adverse conditions like drought that would be detrimental to other types of grass seed.
Studies from accredited research universities like Texas A&M, Ohio State, and New Mexico State demonstrate that Yellow Jacket seed coating also provides a layer of stability that increases initial growth by up to 14%, retains protective fungicide sprays longer and allows seeds to establish good growth, improving your pasture’s overall yield and longevity. This means you can focus less on planting and more on tending to your pastures and animals.
In order to get an accurate estimate of how much seed is required to cover your pasture, you should first calculate how many acres of land you have. Just let us know the length and width of your pasture in feet, and we'll take it from there.
