SF Force Field™
SF Force Field™ Plus

With the large investment farmers make in repasturing or specific cropping it makes sense to help ensure that investment’s success.

Seed treatment is one way to help with successful establishment by taking the pressure off emerging seedlings from insects and diseases.

Emerging seedlings are vulnerable at establishment to a range of attacks so seed treatment can be a cost effective solution to help ensure the success of your pasture and crops.

Seed Force has a range of seed treatments available for different species.

SF Force Field™ seed treatments have been developed for New Zealand conditions using the latest polymer technologies.

They are designed to provide protection against some of the major pests and diseases that attack seedlings whilst delivering seed to the farmer in a form which is as safe as possible, and easy to handle and use.
