A fungicidal seed dressing provides protection from seed and soil-borne disease in cereals, whilst ensuring good crop establishment. Seed dressings provide the foundation for maximising crop yield and quality and their importance is often underestimated. Different seed treatments offer a range of levels of disease control, rooting and establishment benefits.
Seed and soil-borne pathogens present the first risk in the cropping year. They have the potential to reduce the number of healthy plants able to establish and are a long term risk to yield and quality. In this section, you can find out more about the key diseases, which to test for and which present the highest risk to your crop.
