Envirogro® is a special cleaning and treatment process that removes the seed kernel from the husk of the bare seed, leaving the caryopses. This reduces weed seed and other waste material in the final product. The result is improved seed quality, less seed inactivity and better seed flow during sowing. The caryopses is then treated with insecticide and fertiliser to provide the seedling with improved success rates.
