THE COATING PROCESS

Materials are accurately applied by means of a computer-assisted, automated batching process in rotary coating equipment. Each seed kind has its own applicable formulation and application recipe.

The materials are added in a gradual layer build-up to ensure consistent and even-sized seeds.

Although it’s a wet process the seed is dried off immediately, thus preventing the seed from absorbing excess moisture. Drying is done by means of a fluidized bed dryer with controllable speed & temperature settings.

After drying to an acceptable level, the seed is screened to deliver a uniformly sized seed-lot with minimal doubles & blanks.
