Seed Treatments for Carrots.

Germains Seed Technology offers a number of different seed treatments for carrots for an organic or conventional grower. There are a number of seed treatment options may combine based on your cultivation practices, field conditions, and disease pressures.

The following is a short summary of the seed technology options that are available for your carrot crop.
Seed Priming: Seed priming improves the speed of emergence, uniformity, promotes early crop development and increased final population.

Seed Coatings and Pelleting: High quality light weight seed pellet commonly used with agrochemical filmcoating.

Minimal buildup of pelleting materials that help increase the seed’s weight and size. Seed encrustments help improve singulation during automated planting.

Seed filmcoating: To raw seeds or seed pellets, It is the precision application of agrochemicals such as color dyes, fungicides, insecticides and other beneficial microorganisms.

Film coat applications of agrochemicals are designed to apply the chemicals at the approved label rate as required by the California Department of Pesticides.

Film coating options for carrots:
i. Conventional-
1. Rovral: seed applied fungicide that that targets Altenaria blight (Altenaria dauci) and Black crown rot (Altenaria radicina)

2. Thiram: Thiram will usually increase stands and yields by reducing losses from seed decay, damping-off and seedling blights caused by many seed borne and soil borne organisms.

3. FarMore F300: utilizes the active ingredients in Apron XL® fungicide, Maxim® 4FS fungicide and Dynasty® fungicide, to deliver protection for a variety of small-seeded vegetable crops against a broad spectrum of seed and seedling diseases, such as Pythium, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, Helminthosporium, Alternaria, Aspergillus, Penicillium, seed borne Sclerotinia and general damping-off and seedling blight.

ii. Organic-

2. T-22: provides protection against plant root pathogens such as; Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Cylindrocladium and Thielaviopsis.

Seed Health:
Goseed: conventional
