Stimulate plants to thrive with Newton biostimulant seed treatment
Boosting seeds rather than treating plants
Newton biostimulant seed treatment is comprised of unique stimulating peptides that stimulate plants to thrive. It’s the natural, eco-friendly alternative to chemical seed treatment and your root to higher yields. Recommended for use on cereal, pea, bean and maize seed.
Newton plant health is everything
It all starts with the seed. A deep rooted, well tillered plant that’s quick out of the blocks is the key to success. Optimising plant health from day 1 with Newton biostimulant seed treatment – by boosting seeds rather than treating plants – is the number one thing you can do to achieve a more sustainable start (both environmentally & profitably) and protect genetic yield potential.
Stimulates plants to thrive
Managing the balance of growth promoting hormones versus growth inhibiting hormones, Newton not only triggers faster germination, it also signals exceptional root and shoot growth and the defence systems of plants.
With proven abilities in the field, Newton not only ensures vigorous crop establishment, it also helps to build stronger, heathier, more resilient plants less dependent on synthetic inputs.
Stronger establishment from day 1
Puts crops streets ahead
The sooner seedlings emerge, the earlier crops begin to grow and develop. Chemical seed treatments have the potential to delay crop emergence by several days. Treating naked seed with Newton or co-applying with your chemical seed dressing will help to optimise germination and emergence.
- 2 days faster germination than naked seed
- 1.5 days faster than Vibrance Duo
- 2.5 days faster emergence over naked seed
- 4-5 days faster than Beret Gold + Latitude
More vigorous competitive crops
Robust crop establishment helps grow better crops. Difficult weeds and late autumn drilling can slow establishment and compromise potential. Stimulating more shoot mass compared to naked seed, Newton increases crop vigour, giving plants a competitive edge over challenging weeds and suboptimal weather conditions:
- Up to 12% higher emergence with Beret Gold
- Up to 17% higher emergence in stressful growing conditions
- Significantly more tillers recorded at 4 trials sites in 2022
Promotes healthier plants less reliant on synthetics
Significantly increases moisture & nutrient access
Increasing the efficiency of the plant is key to boosting productivity. Poor rooting has implications for plant health and ultimately how you will need to manage that plant during its life.
Stimulating exceptional root growth – better than many other biostimulant seed treatments on the market – Newton puts plants in the best position to acquire crucial moisture and nutrients throughout its lifetime so it is less reliant on synthetic inputs.
- Average +43% extra root mass in cereals
- +64% in beans, +66% root nodules for N-fixing bacteria – download bean guide here
- +28% in peas
- +82% in maize

Supports plant microbial symbiosis
Creates a bigger habitat & food source for microbes
Optimum soil health is key to optimising plant health. 85-90% of plant nutrients are microbially mediated. No matter how much you feed your plants, they won’t be able to access it properly unless your soils are in optimum health. Nurturing soil biology is key. Feeding soil biology will keep your soils alive & nutrients recycling for plants
Newton improves the structure and size of roots for biology to colonise and feed – higher root exudates providing crucial carbohydrates for microbes to function.
Newton is a proactive approach to managing stress
Improves resilience to future stress conditions
Optimising seed health is key to minimising future stress & maximising cropping success. Weather extremes are becoming increasingly prevalent and challenging to plant health.
Newton helps crops thrive under stress:
- Improves frost heave resistance
- Increases resilience over winter
- Grows drought resilient plants
Increase your cropping success with Newton
Flexible to suit your needs
Newton is a flexible biostimulant seed treatment that can be:
- applied solo to naked seed or
- co-applied with a chemical / nutritional seed dressing
- applied by your seed cleaner
- or chemical seed treater
