    We have been using a seed dressing for most of our seed (can’t call it a “Seed Treatment” up here in western Canada as the regulatory agencies get bent out of shape) for the past 3 years and have officially weaned ourselves off of synthetic seed treatments never to go back. A liquid dressing derived from 4 distinct compost compositions, it surrounds the seed with tens of thousands of differentiated strains of beneficial biology to protect the seed from antagonistic pathogens. You may have noticed at the start I mentioned MOST of our crops. For reasons not yet known, we have not seen an economic (nor physiologic/ biological) response on canola or mustard. As we are not organic, we have been doing some trials with a company out of Oak Bluff MB. who have some amazing nutrient seed primers that compliment the biological seed dressing we are using. So yes there are options out there.

    Cheers,
