Farmers Can Now Treat Seeds as Needed
Giant Seed Treater companies take orders from farmers months prior to the actual planting season. That allows the company time to manage inventory and orders, treat seeds to fill orders, and get them delivered. The advantage benefits the corporate Seed Treaters, and leaves the farmer in a precarious position. If the farmer has guessed correctly, the treated seed will be just what is needed when planting begins.
The issue is that there is a lot of time between ordering and planting. Many factors can change in that amount of time. That places all the risks on the farmer. The expense of treated seeds may not result in maximum yields if the weather patterns have changed, the soil is depleted of certain nutrients, or an atypical insect begins attacking the seeds.
A new seed treating system has been developed by engineers and innovators that puts farmers in control of the treatment process. The My Yield series of treating machines can be purchased by farmers to have on their land. They can treat seeds with customized blends of chemicals just before planting them. Farmers can take into consideration the most updated condition of the soil, the current weather patterns, and the types of seeds they wish to plant.
Treatment can be completed as needed to ensure maximum chemical coverage, a fresh application of treatment, and a high crop yield. There are three available sizes to accommodate the size and needs of the farm. The My Yield 5000, for example, can handle the needs of a farmer who treats between 2500 and 5000 units per season. The 7500 system is designed with increased capacity for high volume treating.
All systems leave a minimal environmental foot print, can be easily maneuvered, and are available with either manual or automated operating options. Configurations can be adjusted for customized results, a quick disconnect chemical tank is featured for safety, and the machine utilizes a gentle rotation movement to avoid damage to the seeds. The conveyor belt that transports the seeds from the mixer to the planting equipment continues to rotate the seeds to further ensure complete coverage.
Controlling the treatment process helps farmers be flexible, respond to planting conditions, and have a more profound effect on the yield of their crops. Farmers know their own land, have years of experience harvesting their fields, and will know exactly what treatments are needed when the time comes to plant seeds. Large corporations do not have accurate information months before the season even begins. It makes more sense for farmers to decide what treatments are required for their seeds.
