ST.

Combining Low Mu Tech’s micro-plastic free and 100% U.S. soybean DUST seed flow lubricant, with NewLeaf Symbiotics proprietary microbial technology, Terrasym, the blended Terrasym®+DUST™ is easy to use with convenient planter box application and is proven to increase yields and improve ROI for both corn and soybeans.

“We developed Terrasym+DUST by working hand in hand with Low Mu Tech and focusing on providing farmers with the superior seed singulation they expect for maximum yield potential. ” said Matt Helms, NewLeaf Chief Commercial Officer. “By combining our patented technologies into a blended product, we’re able to provide a convenient, easy to use product that does not require additional work or equipment investment by the farmer or their seed dealer.”
