Seed treatments are extremely important to healthier Montana crops

At Northern seed we offer our customers the most effective broad spectrum seed treatments given Montana’s toughest soil/seed borne diseases. Prescription seed treatments allow our customers the ability to choose which protection he/she needs depending on which crop is being grown and allows the ability to add higher/lesser rates of insecticide/fungicide given specific field/farming challenges.

 

Benefits of Seed Treatment

  • Grower Benefits — ST’s contribute to early and faster planting, healthier stands, higher plant populations and higher yield
  • Healthier Crops ‐ Protecting seed against pathogens, insects and other pests
  • Positive Environmental impacts — Precision and effectiveness of ST;s applied directly to the seed and not on the entire field.
  • Economic impacts — Seed Treatment insecticides are estimated to grow 10.9% annually by 2018
  • Seed coating polymer — Northern Seed offers an advanced polymer that reduces dust-off and minimizes viscosity while keping the seed treatment on the seed.

Northern Seed does carry a current supply of seed treatments for retail sales. However, Northern believes that producers will be dollars ahead by allowing the trained professionals at the Northern Seed conditioning plants apply the seed treatments. Northern Seed has the calibrated treaters installed into its conditioning process. Thus, producers do not have to worry about the accuracy of their rates as they would if they apply at the farm.
