SEED NUTRITION PRODUCT
Help your growers make the most of their soybean seed investment with PROTINUS™ Seed Nutrition from Wolf Trax.
As a leading seed industry participant, we know you are working hard to bring new and advanced seed technology to your customers. And, you want to make sure that any added value – such as what goes on that seed – enhances your seed’s performance and provides a positive return to the grower.
PROTINUS Seed Nutrition Product is a unique seed-applied fertilizer formulated to promote early seed nutrition and delivers early-season growth benefits that can help the seed you sell reach its true yield potential.
By safely applying nutrients right on the seed, PROTINUS helps young seedlings grow, before they are big enough to feed themselves. And getting the crop off to a good, healthy start is critical to its long-term performance and yield potential. PROTINUS Seed Nutrition Product is proven to enhance the seedling growth and performance in the field.
Benefits of enhanced early plant nutrition in soybeans:
- Seedlings mature 1-2 days faster with up to 20%* more plants
- 15%* larger, more vigorous seedlings
- 20%* longer, more developed root systems
- Better ability to withstand early-season stress
- Enhanced yield potential

Optimizing Yield Potential
Agronomists agree – a larger, healthier seedling will result in a higher yielding plant. PROTINUS-treated soybeans resulted 3.4% higher yielding soybeans in over 35 replicated field trials from 2008 – 2010
That means, on average, 2 bu/ac higher yields - and an ROI to the grower of $14 per acre.**
Proven performance of PROTINUS
PROTINUS treated seed has been planted on thousands of acres across the US and Canada this season – and early results are proof positive of PROTINUS performance!
- PROTINUS has been tested on corn, soybeans, cereals, canola, vegetables, sunflowers, cotton, peanuts, alfalfa, turf and forage grasses
- Evaluated across a wide range of conditions and geographies by Universities, independent researchers, Wolf Trax, AND GROWERS
- Tested under adverse growing conditions, including drought, excessive moisture and cool temperatures
“The PROTINUS-treated beans were a more vigorous bean crop.”
