The American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) is aiming to promote safe handling and storage of treated seed during harvest. While seed treatments are incredibly important in protecting seeds and seedlings against pests and disease, appropriate precautions need to be taken to make sure they never enter the grain supply. ASTA and other stakeholders have developed new communication resources. These include a one-pager on stewardship of seed, its importance, and the industry’s efforts to maintain safe use as well as a set of instructional and education videos on improving performance, stewardship and sustainability. You can help share the message by using the hashtag #Harvest18.
