How We Treat Our Seed
We use two-G40 treaters in tandem with 12′ mixing chambers to provide excellent coverage. All seed treatments are on scales, individually weighed with each lot accurately treated. A scale ticket is printed with the application rate. We have select seed primers to suit our customers’ needs.
HIGHER YIELDS AND HIGHER RELIABILITY
The Importance of Seed Treating
We believe that if the seed is worth planting, then it’s worth protecting.
Seed treatments minimize the impact diseases cause at the critical stand establishment phase. Seed Treatments help the plant become established to better utilize moisture and nutrients.
A treated seed uses energy reserves to emerge and grow, rather than defending itself from invading disease pathogens.
Poorly applied treatment can be a waste of time and money
Studies have shown that poorly applied seed treatment products, at less than label rate, perform very similar to seed that was not even treated. Each seed lot treated must be weighed and calibrated for application efficiency. To get the benefit of today’s seed treatment products, trust the experts at Westlock Seed Cleaning for your next application.
