Vegetable Seed Enhancement

The vegetable seed enhancement service we provide, through continuing research and trials, enables growers to ensure uniform plant establishment, promotes early growth, and maximizes efficacy.

We are delighted to be a trusted partner to our customers and contribute to sustainable agricultural practices.

Vegetable Seed Enhancement (VSE)

  • Agrii VSE is a new facility based at our Throws Farm Technology Centre in Essex. It allows high value vegetable seed to be treated with the greatest precision, temperature and moisture-control care, for the best seed quality and protection.
  • Currently we are working with onions, carrots, parsnips, leek, spinach and lettuce. Although we have the capacity to work on other crop species.
  • Treatments provided include biologicals, biostimulants, nutrition and various their combinations– all targeted at enhancing seed establishment.
  • The Agrii VSE business acts as a third-party processor operating on behalf of seed houses. Besides, we can provide services directly to growers.
  • For more information on how to order, please contact your local seed house or for more information on specific treatments, the VSE Manager Kateryna Prilutska.
