Cold start your crop – add PreCede Cereal to your seed protection.

PreCede ® Cereal is a premium seed nutrient dressing designed and field tested to deliver the essential nutrients in the proper form and ratio to successfully cold start the crop.

PreCede is powered by Transit-S and Cellburst Technology, exclusive to ATP, to help the germinated seedling overcome address abiotic stress (cold soils). 

PreCede Cereal is Stage 1 in the System of Chemtrition®.

  • Designed specifically for cereals to address the natural nutrient imbalences that exist in the seed to drive rooting and respiration, especially in cool temperatures.
  • Combines essential cereal crop nutrition with two biostimulants, Transit-S and Cellburst, to improve overall plant health, overcome abiotic stress, and enhance nutrient use efficiency and respiration.
  • Increases root development and eliminates carbohydrate root exudation with the addition of zinc and boron
  • Drives lateral rooting with the optimal ratio of manganese

Proven Agronomic Performance

Charts showing difference in root surface area and yield after applying PreCede Cereal to Wheat and Winter Wheat
  • 41 replicated field trials conducted between 2012 and 2015 reported PreCede Cereal enhanced the root architecture in Wheat.
  • The 4-year average being a 45% increase in the root surface area.
  • In 47 replicated field trials where seed was treated with PreCede, the yield increases were 1.8, 2.6 and 2.5 bu/ac for spring wheat, winter wheat and barley, respectively.

Product Recommendations:

  • If applied alone, dilute PreCede with water to ensure uniform coverage on the seed.
  • Allow for proper drying time to ensure optimum flowability.
  • Do not treat directly into an air seeder.
  • If combined with a seed protectant, conduct a jar test and refer to ATP ’s information on product compatibility and calibration.
  • Once PreCede is combined with a seed protection product, the mixed product should be applied immediately to the seed.
