Cribit Seeds continues to show dedication and commitment to the seed industry with the addition of a new seed treatment facility. The facility was designed so that treated product would not have to be elevated. This minimizes the “run-off” of treatment and keeps it on the seed. This was also designed with the thought of applying Hi-Stick or Hi-Coat to soybeans. Dekalb has paired up with Becker Underwood, and has been working to apply the seed treatment along with the soybean inoculant. As agriculture has progressed, so have seed treatments. Currently companies are mixing insecticides and multiple fungicides together to create a product that has control over multiple diseases and insects. Cribit Seeds currently has the ability to mix fungicides, insecticides and biological seed treatments together. The new facility will allow for new products and new treatment options to be applied in a quality manner.
The equipment in the facility was designed to enhance the best genetics with proven technology. The seed treatment facility includes: an aspirator, computer controlled high speed applicator, dust control systems, and custom manufactured mixing equipment. The tower includes hopper bins with a capacity of 3500 units of treated seed that can quickly be shipped as bulk or packaged into totes or bags.
