Why seed treatment matters to us

Planting time is critical on any farm. How many of those tiny seeds will turn out as flourishing plants? For farmers, who’ve invested money and time in planting them, it’s vitally important they grow up strong and healthy.
Why seed treatment matter to us
Knowing this, we’ve developed a seed treatment system that gives seeds the best possible start in life. By putting active substances on the seed before it’s planted, we can drastically boost its chances of reaching full, healthy maturity. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used some ingredients for exactly that purpose: we love the idea of such a long tradition of caring for seeds.

As a global leader in seed treatment, we’re really proud of our success in this area. Besides the active products we’ve taken big steps forward with our Peridiam coatings and new machinery for to treat seeds, so growers have high quality treated seed.

Our expertise also has a human face. The advisors in our SeedGrowth Service Center are always on hand to help out with relevant issues, especially application processes.

One of the big advantages of seed treatment is that a relatively small quantity of an active ingredient provides seedlings with comprehensive protection against many harmful fungi and insects. Compared with spray application, the treated area is considerably smaller.

Seed  treated with Gaucho™ is the best way for better results and quality in many crops.
