The Storm Seed Treater Offers Peristaltic Pumps, a Metering Conveyor and More

Smart technology “follows” us into our combines, sprayers and grain bins, yet when it’s time to treat seed, it’s still very much a guessing game. But there appears to be a pretty darn intellectual auger on the market. With a touch-screen input and pre-programmed recipes for Bayer CropScience seed treatment products (and the ability to form/store additional recipes), the Storm Seed Treater offers Seed Treatment Optimized Rate Metering.

The grain is metered by a conveyor (which is accurate within +/- 2%), sprayed with treatment in a mixing chamber (with easy maintenance-access panels) and is further mixed as it goes through the specifically designed auger (which runs at speeds to ensure adequate mixing and seed safety). Oh, and just when you thought it couldn’t get any cooler? The aforementioned seed treatment is moved through the system via the kneading action of a peristaltic pump.

The whole system is enclosed, providing easy clean-out, operator safety and efficient application.

Why does no one realize that the Storm Treater is an engineering joke. It’s a program not sound agronomy!
