Becker Underwood has added two new case sizes for its Vault HP growth-enhancement system for soybeans. The 2 x 200-unit package size will treat 20,000 lbs. of soybeans, or enough seed to plant roughly 350 acres using average seeding rates. Each package (case) contains two complete sets of material that will each treat 200, 50-lb. bags, or units, of soybean seed. The 4 x 50-unit size will treat 10,000 lbs. of seed and allow smaller volume treaters to more closely match the inoculant volume to their growers’ needs. The company introduced a 2 x 100-unit case last year that also treats 10,000 lbs. of seed.

"The new 2 x 200 package size will mean more time savings and convenience for large-volume treaters," said Russ Berndt, Becker Underwood product manager for inoculants. "With more growers purchasing and having their seed treated in bulk or large bulk boxes, many of our seed-treater customers needed this option to make more efficient use of their time. It will help improve the work-flow through their operations at planting time and we definitely believe this is a situation where bigger is better for our Vault HP treatment customers."
