For natural growth

ThermoSeed is a type of pasteurization where warm, moist air neutralizes the infection on and in the seed, without compromising the germination and pushing power of the seeds. On the contrary, the germination process is stimulated, which gives stronger and more viable plants.

For a highly productive and environmentally friendly agriculture

ThermoSeed treats seed-borne infections very effectively without the use of chemicals. Thanks to its high efficiency and the outstanding thrust of treated seeds, ThermoSeed competes with and surpasses chemical seed dressing against most diseases in cereals. In addition, the method is effective in a large number of crops, against both fungi, nematodes and insect infestations in the seed. The method is as common in conventional as organic farming.
