Hot Water Treatment
At Elsoms we disinfect seed as a matter of course, to produce cleaner, healthier seed. We have invested in the latest, state-of-the-art hot water treatment plant to ensure our seed is delivered disease-free.
Seed health and quality is a high priority for us, and it will become critically important over the coming years with the continued loss of active ingredients and seed treatments. Using an advanced computer-controlled system, we programme a specific treatment protocol to each seed species. This process reduces seed microbes, seed-borne pathogens and fungal pathogens, ensuring that you receive the highest quality seed.
Computer controlled washing up to 50°C
Can handle batches up to 100kg
The computer-controlled system allows for 99 pre-programed protocols so that each seed species can have its specific treatment protocol preset, with an accuracy of +/- 2 degrees
