The seed treatment products coming on the market are delivering more value than ever to growers and Daniels says it’s important that they be used correctly, which is why ASTA developed the seed treatment stewardship guide a few years ago. “We’ve gotten the chance to get this in front of many grower groups and other key stakeholders, and other been able to demonstrate to EPA and other regulatory groups that we’re taking a proactive approach to steward seed treatment products,” said Daniels.
