									e-dressing of seed
environmentally friendly and reasonable

The basic principle     No chemicals required
of e-dressing of seed   The e-dressing of seed based on the disinfecting (biocidal) effect
                        of low energy electrons.
                        Effects of the electrons are limited to the seed skin.
                        The embryo is not reached – the seed remains genetically untouched.

Advantages              Cost advantage in comparison with chemical dressing
                        No use of chemicals
                        No regulations applying to dangerous substances
                        No residues in the soil
                        Excess production of seed is not hazardous waste but animal feed
                        No ingestion of chemical plant protection agents by animals with the seed
                        e-ventus seed can be stored without hesitation
                        Excellent phytosanitary effect, very good yield
                        Pathogens treated with e-ventus cannot develop resistance
                        High seed throughput up to 30 t/h
                        e-ventus is already established in German agriculture for cereal seed
                        e-ventus does not require licensing and can be used for practically all types
                        of seeds

Seeds                   wheat, rye, barley, triticale, lupine, horticultural seeds etc.
