Why use seed treatments?

You have probably heard that a seed’s greatest yield potential is the highest just before it goes into the ground. After that, there are many factors such as insects, diseases, and environmental conditions that are threatening that seed’s very existence, let alone its high end yield potential! Fortunately, there are key decisions that growers can make to mitigate risks and establish a good stand at planting. Getting a good stand provides the base for a successful growing season. Seed is one of the largest investments made during the growing season, and seed treatments play a critical role in protecting that investment from a wide range of yield robbing pests. Legend Seeds has a great portfolio of products to protect your yield potential and provide success throughout the growing season.
