History, production, development
Feldsaaten Freudenberger has been producing Coated Seeds for over 30 years. Early trials were conducted by the company’s founder, Siegfried Freudenberger, with the aim of improving germination rates and early seedling development. Whilst the first batches of coated seeds were still manufactured in improvised containers in very small volumes, Feldsaaten Freudenberger today operates a sophisticated production plant that is able to coat a wide range of seed varieties with many different coatings.
The company continually develops its production technology further, and the experience it gathers is directly applied to ongoing product optimisation. This ensures that the composition of Feldsaaten Freudenberger Coated Seed is continually improved. Since 2005, a range of coatings have been available, involving not only a variety of active ingredients, but also different colours for dyeing seeds. This ensures that individual customer requests can be met. In some varieties, coat thickness can additionally be varied to deliver the coating that is best suited for the relevant purpose.
