Seed treatments are an effective way of protecting your investment in new pastures. Seed treatments products can include insecticides, fungicides and biological additives (in combination or singularly), designed to help maximise plant establishment. The placement of pesticides in close proximity to the seed means seed treatment is cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
