Seed treatment is a “great insurance policy” for growers, according to Cody Lezer, Federated’s seed warehouse manager at Ogilvie. Seed is expensive, but treatment is “a relatively cheap way to protect the seed from issues that can arise throughout the growing season.”
“Seed treatments help plants from Day 1,” said Lezer, “and can improve stand counts and promote better root growth to help plants find nutrients.”
