Today's planting equipment requires a smooth round shape for optimal results The peletting or encrusting of seed will create a smoother surface and more uniform shape as well as increase size and weight: all characteristics designed to maximize planting efficiency. INCOTEC®'s coating products are developed to maintain the germination capacity of the seed. Good examples of this are the Split PillTM, and Splitkote® seed pellets, originally developed for lettuce. The coating is designed to allow free and easy access of moisture and oxygen to the seed.
With the ever changing market, our coatings are constantly being adapted to deal with present day needs and legislation both locally and globally.
INCOTEC works continuously on the development of new seed technologies designed to assist growers in dealing with the many challenges faced in today’s crop production. One of these developments is our Rotary Coater technology, which allows for the encrustation of bulk seed, such as grasses, at an economically feasible rate.
