Novo is a closed system that precisely measures and mixes seed treatment prescriptions by scale weight and then transfers the mixture to the treatment tank on the seed treater. Each purchase of a Novo System includes a royalty free license to use the patented SIRA – Size Indexed Rate Adjustment Seed Treating method, which empowers operators to treat all seed sizes with the same level of active ingredient. In addition, Novo automatically documents each treatment batch with a detailed record of the seed treatment prescription mix and associated details needed to satisfy regulatory compliance and archive important accounting and operational information.

Novo is designed to couple and work with any of the leading seed treating systems, such as those manufactured by USC, KSI, Bayer, and others. The purchase of a Novo system includes training, technical support, and installation with adaption to virtually any type of slurry-based seed treater.

“With Novo, seed care operators have expanded capability to do a better job of treating seed for the grower customer and their business. With more treatment options than ever before, Novo is a must consideration for any seed treatment business looking to grow and expand their seed services, and the NOVO sales agent network is here to help seed treatment operations learn more about NOVO and how it can bring value to their business,” Henson concluded.
