Platform Seed Increases Baby Carrot Yields

In the last 4 years, Agrimm have been working with Wattie’s to evaluate the effect of Platform Seed on yields in a range of processed vegetable crops.

Over 40% of the world’s carrot seed is grown in New Zealand, so it is no problem getting hold of bare seed for this crop. The Platform Seed treatment was compared to grower standard, but for this trial it was added to the fungicide in a single commercial seed treatment application.

Treatment areas started at 1ha and grew to 2ha through the trials and were commercially grown and harvested under standard company practice.
