Encrusting and pelleting
If you want an efficient sowing process using mechanical planting equipment, seeds need to be of a uniform size and have sufficient weight and a smooth surface. To achieve this, seeds are pelleted or encrusted. The larger seed surface provides room for plant protection products, nutrients and biologicals. Our coatings are the ideal carriers and are designed to keep all the components within the coating. To underline a seeds value, they can also be cosmetically improved by including a colour or visual effect. The type of seed and sowing equipment will determine the choice of encrusting or pelleting.
