As planting season begins across the country, the American Seed Trade Association reminds farmers to follow the basic steps for seed treatment stewardship.

  • Follow directions on seed container labeling.
  • Eliminate weeds in and around the field prior to planting.
  • Minimize dust by using advanced seed flow lubricants.
  • “BeeAware” of honey bees and hives located near the field.
  • Remove all treated seed left in containers and equipment.
  • And  ensure that any spilled seeds are removed or covered by soil to protect wildlife and the environment.
