Seed Treatment Service
We have another separate service that we provide for our customers. We can treat any soybeans for you, even if you didn’t purchase the seed from us. We can provide coated, fungicide-treated, and inoculated seed to our customers through our USC LPX2000 seed treater. LPX is the next generation of seed treaters, this model utilizes design and allows consultants to fully customize their treatment based on the exact needs of their customers. It has keg stands and electronic scales for each product, making this a perfect treater for our growing business. Based on the quality and accuracy of our machine, we know we are providing our customers with the best innovative technology and feel very confident that every single seed we coat is going to thrive in the upcoming growing season. This machine is easy to clean, so you don’t have to worry about previous mixes we have applied ending up on your seed. If you are interested in this service, please contact us and let us know! As we said before, this is a separate service, and even if you don’t purchase your seed from Weaver Seed Service, we can still coat any of your soybeans for you. Some important reasons you may want to treat your seed would be if you have poorly drained fields or no-tilled fields. If spring conditions are cool and wet (we experience a lot of that here in Maryland), seed treatment fungicides can be a tremendous asset! Also, these fungicide treatments show an average yield increase of bushels per acre over a couple of years span. We are so excited to provide this service, and we really hope you take full advantage of it!
Weaver Seed Service is proud to promote companies we have had success with on our own acres, so it is with great pleasure we treat all our soybeans with products from Agrauxine, formerly known as ABM Inoculants. Agrauxine is a division of the Lesaffre Corporation which is the largest producer of yeast in the world. These yeasts are used to create the biology in seed treatments, planter box inoculants, and plant amendments. Agrauxine acquired ABM inoculants in 2020 and has been growing its business in the USA ever since. Weaver Seed Service is a firm believer in seed inoculation. We inoculate through our seed treater as well as through our planter boxes with products like Graph-Ex. It is important to note that our USC LPX2000 has been specially modified so that our live inoculum is placed on the seed past the atomizer. The atomizer is a spinning grate that applies polymer and chemicals to the seed as it passes through the treater. Living inoculum cannot withstand the force of an atomizer as it spins, and therefore we apply it in a much gentler fashion. Even if we don’t handle your soybean seed, make sure your seedsman is applying your inoculant the proper way.
