Pelleting improves the shape, size, and uniformity of raw seeds for more accurate sowing by hand and precision-sowing by machine. The use of pelleted seed results in a more uniform stand, less seed actually being used, and less time spent thinning.
The pellets are made of inert materials which dissolve as they absorb moisture, allowing immediate access to oxygen for fast, uniform seedling emergence. Whenever possible, we have used pelleting that is approved for organic production. It is our plan to phase out conventional pelleting in favor of the NOP-compliant type.
