You want to know that all your crops will reach their full establishment and yield potential. You also want to know that you’re getting full value from your seed treatments. That’s why no-one tests treated seeds more thoroughly.


The testing

Here’s how analysis through Bayer SureStart ensures evenness, chemical loading and full traceability

It all starts in the lab. Through SureStart we analyse seed samples from many processors for evenness and chemical loading. We collect thousands of samples a year and can track each one for seed variety, date and time of treatment, weather conditions and even dust levels. In the unlikely event of a problem, you can be clear we have access to all the relevant data.

Processors are accountable

To guarantee performance, this has led us to develop dedicated quality assurance schemes and agreements with processor companies. What’s more, each individual operator must have an NTPC Certificate of Competence or be directly supervised by someone who has.

As a result, we can give customers – and occasionally buyers – detailed QA with full analysis trails.
