We recommend seed treatment on your purchase of wheat or barley.
Seed treatments contain fungicides that will control a wide range of diseases. Common seed diseases in Alberta are rots, bunts, smuts and blights. Seed treatment ensures your investment in seed pays off by protecting it from these common diseases, this is particularly importing if you are seeding in less than ideal conditions.

Seed Treatment Options available from Chin Ridge Seeds:
We can save you the mess and hassle of seed treating your seed and are able to apply the following seed treatments to your seed purchase:
Raxil MD: is a Bayer product that provides the broad-spectrum disease protection your cereal crops needs. We generally recommend Raxil MD as a seed treatment on barley because of the control it provides for loose smut and fusarium.
Divident XL RTA: is a Syngenta product that shields your wheat, barley, oats, rye and triticale from diseases like fusarium.
Cruiser 350 FS: is a Syngenta product that we combine with Dividend XL RTA to provide a broad spectrum disease protection while at the same time providing the wireworm protection of Cruiser. We apply Cruiser at the 20 gram rate to provide effective wireworm protection.
