New high sustainability seed treatment centre established
26th Jun 2020
A state-of-the-art seed treatment centre has been established by Agrii UK.
Built and installed by TeaL Agro Technologies at Agrii’s Throws Farm Technology Centre in Essex, the new facility allows high value vegetable seed to be treated with the greatest precision, temperature and moisture-control care for the best seed quality and protection.
In parallel to this Agrii have entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with leading Dutch organic coatings specialist, Ad Terram giving the UK seed industry access to a growing range of environmentally-friendly, rapidly biodegradable, microplastic-free film coatings.
Specific biostimulants and approved fungicides and pesticides products can be included to order as part of the high technology film-coating process which offers a range of natural pigment colourings for better field visibility.
The 100% organic, non-polymer, non-bioplastic coatings are also supplied as pre-mixes containing Ad Terram’s own range of biostimulants that promote nutrient uptake and increase stress tolerance for stronger, healthier crops.
“Our new facility is designed to serve the conventional as well as organic seed trade,” explains Agrii regional commercial director, Neil Ross, stressing the growing importance of environmental sustainability in the UK field vegetable market.
“As the only seed treatment facility of its type in the country, we are using it to provide the highest quality treatments to deliver this for a broad range of vegetable seed.”
Under the agreement with Ad Terram, Agrii will also be supplying the company’s range of advanced bulb and foliar-applied biostimulants across the UK.
