Be Sure to Properly Dispose of Leftover Treated Seed
As the end of the planting season approaches, growers should be sure to brush up on the proper disposal practices for leftover treated seed.
Excess treated seed can be returned to the original seed lot containers if the seed is intended for storage and subsequent planting. Unless restricted by label language, it may also be double planted in the turn rows at the end of the field or within a portion of the field. Additionally, growers can plant leftover treated seed in fallow or other non-cropped areas of the farm in accordance with the seed treatment product label.
When disposing of large quantities of treated seed off the farm, it’s important to consult with state and local authorities to ensure the disposal plan is in compliance with all appropriate regulations.
