Creating the future of seed enhancement. Increase yields with ecological benefits.

Patented Venso™ is a dust free, multi-layer liquid concentrate application system for seed enhancement. With superior preservation of microbes and up to 100 times more even drying conditions than any other technology.

Patented Venso™ is the only technology that can coat and dry discrete layers of liquid concentrate encapsulating chemistry, trace elements, buffering and biologicals while maximising microbial shelf life.  Our IIoT control system can manage dosage on the go and control the temperature of the seed and coating throughout drying to cut wastage.

TOWARDS ZERO HUNGER

Seed coatings that unlock potential

A total re-imagining of seed coating and drying to increase crop yields, VensoFlow™   technology integrates contactless spray coating with uniform, controlled drying conditions - perfect for heat sensitive microbials which other processes can denature. Multiple liquid concentrate layers can be rapidly applied and dried in one process, without powder binders. For delicate microbials with very short shelf lives, stored, encrusted seeds can have a fast microbial topcoat applied in seconds before sowing. Offering ultimate formulation flexibility and repeatability, VensoFlow supports micro-dosing and functional sequencing of plant beneficial materials. Each layer can be targeted - by spraying a strong, flowable, highly pigmented outer coat, combined with a bio-friendly polymer for microbial layers and cost effective carriers for the chemistry.

Reduce wastage

Seed coating wastage from overheating and clumping or clustering of semi-dried seed coatings can be 15% and more. VensoFlow™ solves all these problems to deliver more seeds for less time and cost.

Enhance quality and yield

Maximise quality control by layering coatings under uniform, controlled conditions that eliminate chemical phytotoxicity and are gentle on microbials. Support germination, improve the viability and vigour of seeds and increase global crop yields.

Cut pollution and cost

VensoFlow™ removes the need for powders as binders for liquid seed enhancement formulations. Powders increase processing and freight costs and cause dusting which harms pollinators and creates pollution and OH&S issues.

The difference we can make

VensoFlow™ protects seeds and natural seed coatings such as bacteria, enzymes and fungi from drying damage. From removing the need for costly, polluting powder binders, to supporting improved multi-layer seed coatings that reduce waste, increase yields, protect crops and enhance the soil, we help farmers and producers make the most of their resources, while supporting multiple UN Sustainability goals.
Why VensoFlow™ is a better seed coating solution
benefit pollinators

Zero dusting

The first seed enhancement system that can deliver the required doses of liquid concentrate onto seed without needing added powders.

Protects

Plant health and the environment – the EU has passed anti-dusting regulations in 2023.
seedling in healthy soil

No harmful residues

Discrete, micro-dosed, microplastic and dust free coatings provide maximum plant stimulation without harmful residues.

Protects

Our environment, soil biome and land productivity.
young corn crops

Superior process control

Transient heat exposure in a controlled environment protects bio-actives. The VensoFlow Contactless Seed Enhancement system also reduces waste from clustered seeds.

Protects

Valuable seeds and improves germination success rates and plant vigour.
healthy farmland

Sustainable energy use

Rapid, efficient drying lowers energy costs and reduces seed processing times to seconds, not minutes.

Protects

The environment by reducing emissions, and your wallet by reduced energy costs.

Supporting UN Sustainability Goals

VensoFlow™ technology can help you support five key UN sustainability goals.
  • GOAL
  • #2
Zero hunger
Sustainable cropping systems can increase yields and support the regeneration of productive soil biomes.
  • GOAL
  • #6
Clean water
Dust free and precision-dosed coatings avoid wastage, and reduce the need for fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides that can enter our waterways.
  • GOAL
  • #9

Innovation and infrastructure
Our compact, modular and scalable seed treatment infrastructure can benefit farmers with mobile on-field solutions and agricultural businesses of all sizes.
  • GOAL
  • #13
Climate action
Our energy efficient technology reduces processing and freight emissions to reduce greenhouse gases.
  • GOAL
  • #15
Life on land
By supporting regenerative biological seed treatments we can increase both crop yields and land health, reversing soil degradation and improving farmers' bottom line.

VensoFlow benefits for seed coating

The re-imagining of seed coating was the culmination of the life’s work of our Technical Founder, Emeritus Professor Owen Potter AM, a globally recognised fluidisation expert and renowned industrial problem solver. Benefits include:

sustainability earth and leaf icon
Gentle on seeds and biologicals
Other technologies produce wastage from clustering, hotspots and prolonged heat exposure. VensoFlow™ optimal seed separation, precise temperature with transient heat exposure and 100x more even drying maximises quality.

VensoFlow Seed Coater and Dryer

Problems of conventional seed coating systems

Roto Pan Coaters

  • Like a mixing bowl, batch, not continuous flow
  • Slower and more labour intensive
  • Typically 1-2 layers maximum
  • Centrifugal force can damage seeds
  • Toxic chemicals can damage seeds
  • Agglomeration of coated seeds
  • Additional machinery for drying may be needed
Rotary Drum Dryer

Rotary Drum Dryers

  • Prolonged drying time, uneven exposure
  • Mechanical & heat stress to seeds & coatings
  • Excess heat can denature biologicals
  • Excessive energy “lifting” seeds
  • Bruising reduces germination & vigour
  • Agglomeration of coated seeds
  • Excessive wastage as a result
