Chemical Seed Treatment

Understand safety, efficacy and shelf life of your seed treatment products with studies during development to determine their safety and effectiveness.

  • Seed germination and vigor assessment – initial assessment and long-term storage studies to determine the safety of products when stored on seeds
  • Compatibility studies with commercial active packages to determine mixing ability
  • Flowability and plantability testing to determine a treatment’s impact on seed flow through equipment
  • Dust-off testing using the Heubach dustmeter to determine levels of free-floating dust and abrasion particles generated during seed handling
  • Active ingredient rate determination – measure how much of an active ingredient can be applied to a seed

With a global network of state-of-the-art testing facilities and unrivalled expertise and experience, we will support you at every stage of the development process – from field trial preparation to efficacy analysis.
