We recommend seed treatment on your purchase of wheat or barley.

Seed treatments contain fungicides that will control a wide range of diseases. Common seed diseases in Alberta are rots, bunts, smuts and blights. Seed treatment ensures your investment in seed pays off by protecting it from these common diseases, this is particularly importing if you are seeding in less than ideal  conditions.
