The American Soybean Association reminds growers to take special care to prevent treated seeds from being included in the supply of U.S. grains and oilseeds. Treated seeds in commodity shipments are a multi-commodity problem that warrants the attention of the entire supply chain.

As spring planting season moves forward, it is important to draw attention to the fact that pesticide treated seeds in commodity grain and oil seed shipments must be prevented.

Growers and shippers need to comply with U.S. law and prevent treated seeds from entering the commodity supply. Maintaining a stellar reputation for appropriately managing all pesticides is one key element of providing for customer satisfaction in exports.
