Portable Seed Treatment

 

Countryside Ag has invested in a high-end, portable seed treater to offer our customers the latest in soybean crop protection and yield promoting technology. By utilizing seed treatments on soybeans, growers can protect their crop investments by improving and protecting plant stands and seedling vigor. This then enables soybean growers to avoid replanting costs and maximize yield potential. With an up front investment in improving the soybean crop’s health, a grower could be cashing in the profitability at the end of the season with increased yields. Countryside Ag will be treating soybeans purchased from any seed company and even certified conventional bin run beans so talk with your Countryside Ag Crop Specialist how seed treatments can increase your farming profitability this year. Ask about trying out these treatments in a side by side test plot on your farm!
Benefits of Using a Fungicide Seed Treatment:
  • Improved germination
  • Improved seedling vigor
  • Reduces soil-borne infection
  • Protects high-value seed against soil-borne disease
  • Betters your chance to maximize yields.
  • Protects against Pythium, early season Phytophthora, Rhizonctonia, Fusarium, seed borne Sclerotinia, seed-borne Phomopsis, and general seed rots
  • Less than 1 bu/acre in increased yield to break even with investment cost

Benefits of Using a Fungicide/Insecticide Seed Treatment Combination:
  • Increased plant stands, uniformity, vigor, speed to canopy and yield
  • Under heavy insect pressure, field tests have shown as much as 10-14 bushel per acre yield advantage over untreated acres.
  • Has shown the ability to increase yield even under low insect pressures through increased plant health
  • Excellent activity against a broad spectrum of insect pests – wireworms, seed corn maggot, bean leaf beetles, and early soybean aphids
  • Potential to reduce virus incidence and transmission from insect hosts
  • Less than 2.5 bu/acre increase in yield to break even with investment cost
 
Benefits Of Soybean Inoculation
Interest in inoculating soybeans has increased in recent years. This is due in part to higher soybean prices, improvements in inoculation products, and increased seed dealer capacity to apply seed treatments. It is also a direct result of the unbiased research conducted at land grant universities and disseminated by the Extension system.
Soybean inoculation research conducted at Michigan State University by Kurt Thelen showed that inoculation increased soybean yields on average by 1.3 bushels per acre in fields having a history of previous inoculation use. Similar results have been documented in long-term soybean inoculation trials conducted in Ohio (two bushels per acre), Indiana (one bushel per acre) and Ontario (1.25 bushels per acre).
Based on this information and the soybean market price, soybean inoculation is a profitable practice. The only remaining questions are why does the response to inoculation vary from site to site and what can producers do to improve the performance of inoculants?
There are several factors that affect nodulation and nitrogen fixation (soil fertility status, soil pH, soil compaction, root health, soil moisture and the viability of Rhizobia bacteria). High levels of soil nitrogen have been shown to reduce nodulation and nitrogen fixation. These conditions are common when soybeans are planted where manure has been applied or a legume such as alfalfa or red clover was the preceding crop. Factors such as soil compaction and root diseases that reduce root and root hair development inhibit nodulation. Conditions that reduce the bacterial populations such as heat, excessive soil moisture and drought can also reduce nodulation and nitrogen fixation.
