Protected Germination Zone

What Is HydroLoc?

HydroLoc is a densely absorbent compound applied in-between multiple layers of coatings and treatments. It is designed to hold water and micronutrients encapsulated around a seed while enforcing a single cohesive growing ecosystem amongst fungicides and inoculants. The perfect enhancement for Apex or Pinnacle seed coatings.

Why It is Used

HydroLoc creates a protective shield around a seed’s immediate surroundings to stop the soil from leaching micronutrients forming an effective hydrogel or incubation solution significantly increasing the impact of all coating layers and bringing germination rates to an absolute maximum.


It is extra important to apply HydroLoc when using super hydrating polymers. With a steady supply of water and nutrients, plants grow healthier, crops are more uniform, and yields are increased. Coating seeds with water absorbent materials can improve their survival, especially for those planted in drought or barren areas.
