Seed Grading - NSW & Victoria, Australia

It has long been proven that large, plump seeds that don’t get affected by weather, insects or moisture have greater vigour, germination and emergence.

Seed grading is essential in optimising your sowing and cropping program. Sowing pure quality seed saves you time and ultimately increases your bottom line.

Harvesting and grain storage (including aeration and insect prevention) is a pivotal part in retaining quality seed.

We supply and apply our seed treatments - please speak to your agronomist prior to grading your seed and on their recommendation, we will accurately apply treatments at your request.

Dusty grain is the single most problem with good seed coverage. Dust (both weevil and grain dust) inhibits the seed treatment’s ability to stick to the surface of the seed, resulting in dustoff. Harvesting techniques and grain storage are the difference between good and poor seed treatment coverage. Dust off reduces the effectiveness of the seed treatment.
