SEED TREATINGOnsite Facility
Why You Should Treat Your Seed
The best insurance policy for your seed crop is to treat your seed before it goes in the ground. Bell Pasture Seeds now has a fully operating treatment plant that will coat your seed with a specific product, in the attempt to give your crop the best chance it has of reaching its full optimization growth and yield results.
The purpose of treating/coating your investment prior to sowing, protects the seed during its most vulnerable stages and during weather risks. It guards against early season disease and insects, maximizing crop yield therefore providing your best insurance policy. A diseased crop can ruin the yield for the year, meaning a loss of investment. However, a diseased crop can also damage the soil and cause even more damage down the track. Treating is a preventative measure to give your investment the best chance of obtaining its best results. Further advantages are seed germination optimization and plant emergence and regrowth giving you a higher ROI.
