Seedcare It’s a common misconception that growing more food means exploiting land and water resources. With the technology available today, farmers can increase production sustainably by growing more from less. Seed treatments are among the newest technologies available and are helping farmers grow more food.
A seed treatment is a chemical/biological substance or physical process applied to seeds or seedlings to protect against insects, seed and soil-borne diseases and certain weather conditions such as frost, drought or flooding.
Applying a seed treatment to any crop is an agronomic best practice. By protecting the seed from early-season stressors, seed treatments help seeds reach their full genetic potential. Research even shows that some seed treatments can promote earlier emergence, better stand establishment, larger root systems and higher yields – an effect referred to as Vigor Trigger®.
