A seed is a basic input in agriculture production. Presently, 70% requirement of seed is met from the farmer’s own stocks which go for sowing without seed treatment. Even if seed is sourced from the private sector agencies, except hybrid seeds, a large percentage of such seed is untreated.
Seed treatment not only protects the seeds from seed and soil-borne diseases but also gives protection to the emerged seedlings from sucking insects’ pests affecting crop emergence and its early growth.
To get uniform & effective seed treatment, use of Seed Dressing Drum is becoming necessary. The equipment is easy to handle, light in weight, no technical guidance/ knowledge is required to handle this equipment hence farmer friendly.
Type: Manually Operated Seed Dressing Drum
- Manually Operated Seed Dressing Drum is used to get uniform & effective seed treatment.
- Also, chemical reaction of fertilizer which occur by hand mixing/treatment can trigger health hazard which can be prevented.
Mostly used in Crop Field, Farms, Seed treating industry.
