Seed Treating

Anderson Wheat Farms offers seed treatment capabilities. Seed treatment can be considered an "insurance policy" to protect your seed investment by preventing and reducing the risks from a number of soil borne and seed borne pathogens and insects. Treating seed creates better stand establishment and early season growth and vigor.

Variables involved with seed treatment decisions:

  • Seed Cost

  • Seet Treating Cost

  • Crop Value

  • Field / Crop History

  • Seed Quality

  • Soil Condition

  • Tillage Practices

  • Planting Date

  • Anticipated Disease and Insect Pressure

  • Tolerance to Risk

We recommend treating all seed with CruiserMaxx® Vibrance® Cereal, a seed treatment product for protection against damage from certain insects and disease of cereals. 

Active ingredients: Sedaxane, Difenoconazole, Mefenoxam, Thiamethoxam.

Also consider, AWAKEN ST®, a nutritional seed treatment made from the patented complex of zinc ammonium acetate with potash, and a balanced micronutrient seed treatment package including: 5% Zinc, Boron, Copper, Iron, Manganese, and Molybdenum.

AWAKEN ST provides quicker germination, promotes early plant vigor, and better root systems.
