    Cost vs. Benefit of Seed Treatments

    The era of low commodity prices is forcing farmers to rethink what inputs they can and can’t live without. While the overall goal of any growing season is to get a plant out of the ground in optimal health, it’s hard to pick any growing condition in which a farmer wouldn’t gain some level of benefit from a seed treatment.

    Farming Begins in the Soil

    We can make a lot of input decisions that impact yield - what seed we'll use, how much fertilizer we'll put down - but at the end of the day, a crop can only be as successful as the foundation we give it. By measuring the quality and composition of chemical, biological and physical elements, soil tests are able to determine which categories are being met and which can be improved upon.
