JUMP START YOUR WINTER WHEAT CROP'S SUCCESS


When it comes to planting winter wheat, time is not on your side.  It's a race to get the plant in the ground and off to a fast start before the cold weather arrives.  A proven seed treatment allows the plant to get better root development and promote tiller initiation as early as possible. Fall tillers are crucial as they promote better yield potential and better winter survivability of the plant.  Treatments have also proven to shield crops against disease, insects and suboptimal field conditions, protecting seed and trait investments...and your yield. 



 

RESULTS YOU CAN SEE

Seed treatments are the most effective way to protect the seed during the early period of growth. A seed treatment can help:
  • Protect seed investments
  • Reduce the risk of replant
  • Help defend against diseases and insects
  • Help shield crops from suboptimal field conditions
IMPROVE YOUR FINAL STAND
Seed cleaning helps remove seeds that were infected by diseases and have shown to increase test weights, improve emergence and seedling vigor. KSU has conducted research that shows a benefit in final stand and yield with seed that was ran through a cleaner. Our seed cleaning system is located in Dighton and has you covered for all your wheat seed cleaning needs.
