What is Seed Treatment?

Seed treatment is the process of applying sterilization techniques for disinfecting seeds by killing pathogenic organisms and storing insects. It includes the application of herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides, as well as drying and soaking the seeds in nutrient solutions. It assists in coating seeds with various inert substances, such as chalk, lime, and talcum, to increase their size and weight. It also aids in preventing multiple seed-borne diseases and pest attacks, reviving dormant seeds, enhancing drought tolerance, increasing the germination speed of sources, and making them resilient to extreme temperature conditions.

Apart from this, it helps overcome diseases and provides protection tocrops by using various biological substances, such as fungi, bacteria, and algae. Seed treatment boosts the fortification of grains by increasing the durability of seedlings and making them tolerant to unfavorable soil environments. It enhances root and shoot growth, increases plant density and field productivity, and reduces the requirement for chemical application. It also improves the quality of soil for replanting crops by keeping it free from spores and nematodes. Furthermore, as it is eco-friendly, non-toxic, and an effective processfor maintaining seed qualities ofvarious crops, such as rice, barley, wheat, brinjal, sugarcane, tomato, coriander, brinjal, and potato, the demand for seed treatment is growing worldwide.
