Becker Underwood’s family of polymers keeps actives on the seed, controls dust-off during and after the seed treatment process, improves application coverage, plantability, seed flow in seed facilities, seed performance, seed appearance and seed build up.

With greater investments farmers are making in seed traits and treatments -- applied at low and high usage rates -- seed companies and producers want to secure the desired treatments to the seed each time.
