New technology and equipment for cereal, specialty crops

12/31/2012 @ 9:25am

Ag Growth International Inc.(AGI) is combining its expertise in grain handling equipment with Bayer CropScience Inc.'s SeedGrowth technology to develop and distribute an on-farm seed treater for the North American market.

The new seed treater offers electronic controls, a metering conveyor and peristaltic metering pumps to ensure that the seed treatment is accurately applied. Because the seed treatment market continues to grow in North America the seed treater was developed to fill a void in precision on-farm seed treatment application equipment.

“We believe that future advances in crop production will come from seed development or from on the seed technologies,” explains Brent Collins, Director of Cereals Marketing for Bayer CropScience Inc. in Canada. “Working with AGI will help us bring SeedGrowth technologies to growers and will enable them to accurately apply seed treatment and maximize their returns.”

The launch in Canada through a co-marketing agreement between Ag Growth International and Bayer CropScience Inc. is planned for 2013 with demonstration units. Commercial units will be available for sale in the fall of 2013 for the 2014 seed treatment season.
