This is a description of the first study from Brant. It will go here and tell us a summary of what it is.
The second study from Brant will be described here. It, again, will share information on what the study investigated and found out.
There are three studies, and this description will give info on the third one. We just need to make sure we have the most recent three study PDFs and titles.
Investigate the advantages of seed encapsulation with conventional and/or controlled release fertilizers on crop plants.
Consider the advantages of including plant biostimulants (e.g., gelatin) with encapsulated seeds on germination and plant growth.
Evaluate the possibility of including plant hormones (e.g., gibberellic acid) and other plant growth regulators along with encapsulated seeds.
Employ the capsules as a delivery system for seeds with moisture attractive (e.g., hydrogel polymers) and repulsive agents.
Develop a delivery system for bacterial inoculum (e.g., rhizobium) that involves seed encapsulation.
Investigate the role of encapsulating micronutrient additives and their effects on crop plant growth and performance.
Consider the importance of encapsulating beneficial fungi (e.g., mycorrhiza) with seeds.
Evaluate the use of seed encapsulation with chemical additives as a means to minimize human contact with agrochemicals.
Evaluate the possibility of encapsulating seeds with time-delay agents and agrochemicals to prolong the activity of that chemical.
Employ encapsulation as a possible delivery mechanism for seeds and pesticides (e.g., nematicides) including controlled release pesticides.
Explore the possibility of using seed encapsulation as a means to prolong seed viability and storability.
Consider the use of seed encapsulation with agrochemicals (pesticides and fertilizers) as a means to reduce chemical loads on farmlands, through precise application and optimal dosing.
