Potatoes have been an integral part of much of the world’s food supply for centuries and is the world’s fourth-largest food crop, following rice, wheat, and maize. In fact, the potato is known to produce more food per unit area of land planted than any other major-planted crop so it might suprise you to learn that nearly all potato seed grown in North America is coated with our potato seed treatment bark flours which helps heal and suberize the cut seed and decreases seed treater and planter build-up.

Conventional potato producers may blend it with an active dry fungicide. It is quickly gaining popularity in liquid potato treatment as a follow up to dry the liquid and hold it on the seed piece. All products are manufactured to exacting standards, which are critical to insuring performance in the field.
