At PICKSEED, we start with performance trials and testing programs to develop proprietary forage products. We contract our forage seed needs with highly skilled Canadian seed growers, who work closely with our experienced field representatives to ensure our seed crops are of top quality. Our expert sales and technical staff are always ready to support and assist you with your forage product choices and agronomic needs.
Seed Treatments to Ensure Better Performance
- We add Apron® XL* treatment on our proprietary alfalfa seed to protect the seedling from early season diseases and provide superior germination and stand establishment.
- Alfalfa seed is pre-inoculated with Nitragin® Gold** inoculant to ensure that alfalfa roots become properly nodulated and are capable of fixing a maximum of atmospheric nitrogen.
- We operate processing facilities in four provinces to clean, treat and mix our forage products.
