Due to the depletion of nutrients in the soil, the desire for a successful crop, and the need to increase yields to meet food demands, farmers purchase treated seeds from suppliers. There are several variables that affect the amount of seed needed in a growing season. Once the seed is purchased, it cannot be returned if there is any extra. That often leaves farmers with seed that is wasted, which increases operational costs.
Other Issues with Treated Seeds
Most manufacturers treat seeds in mass quantities before they are bagged and sold. Inconsistent coverage is the result. A massive Seed Treater may only partially treat a certain percentage of the seeds. Treated seeds can also lose some coating due to friction during the process. The quality of the treated seeds can vary greatly from bag to bag. That will also cost farmer money, either in the failure of the seeds, or a decrease in the total crop yield for the season.
A treatment blend that works well in one region or on one farm may not be as effective in another area. Farmers who purchase treated seeds have zero flexibility regarding what chemicals are used to treat those seeds. Some farmers purchase plain seeds and blend up their own treatments by hand. It is a lengthy process that can be expensive and labor intensive.
An Easier Way
A line of Seed Treater machines is now available in different sizes to accommodate small, medium, and large farms. They are affordable, versatile, and durable. Farmers can mix up their own blend quickly and efficiently, or purchase pre-made blends. Seeds can now be treated as needed to avoid wasting money on extra seeds. The return on the investment is high because money is saved for several years into the future.
The consistency and quality of coverage are better because the seed is being treated in smaller batches and used right away. There is no damage during transport because the seed goes directly from the machine to the seed spreader. Farmers can take control of the quality of blends and the number of seeds treated. That empowers them to accommodate the soil conditions, produce bigger yields, and experiment with treatment blends.
