Having seeds treated allow farmers to protect their investments and increase their yields. More produce is brought to market, profits rise, and preparations for next season can begin on time. Most farmers purchase seeds that have already been treated en masse. There are different blends that suit several crops and soil conditions, but there are bound to be inconsistencies.
Issues with Mass Processing
Sending massive amounts of seeds through a machine to get them all treated results in a few issues. The first issue is that not all those seeds are going to benefit from complete coverage. Some will clump together, chemicals can come off in the tumbling phase, and spraying can be uneven. Depending on how well seeds are dispersed, a few farmers can find themselves with inferior seeds.
Another problem is that seeds cannot be used from one season to the next. The chemical blends will not maintain potency when stored. That can cause problems for farmers. They may be stuck with seeds they cannot use. The return on their investment will not be as high as desired. If seeds get wet, contaminated, or damaged somehow before they are planted, the treatment will be useless.
One company, My Yield, has successfully designed, engineered, and manufacturers seed treatment systems for farmers. Seed treatment products and chemical blends are available as well. The combination of the systems and the products results in Empowering Farmers Seed Treaters because they can experiment with their own blends and amounts.
Seeds can be treated right on the farm just before planting. Small batches mean complete and consistent coverage. They also eliminate spending money on seeds that cannot be used. Lower treating costs often pays for the machine in the first season, leading to a full and quick return on the investment.
The system is available in three sizes to accommodate different farm acreage and needs. The smallest model is ideal for smaller farms that plant two-thousand and five-hundred acres or less. The next size is designed for needs of a five-thousand acre farm. The largest system will accommodate a farm with the capacity of seven-thousand and five-hundred acres.
