Five seed coating types, namely dry coating, seed dressing, film coating, encrustments, and seed pelleting, are used commercially for the application of active components to enhance seed and crop performance. There are three major types of equipment for producing these different coatings: dry powder applicator, rotary pan, and pelleting pan. Modern seed coating technology provides a delivery system for a wide range of materials including biostimulants, nutrients, and plant protectants. One example, illustrated on the cover, is the application of an organically approved biopesticide by film coating for the protection of hemp seedlings from damping-off caused by soil-borne pathogens.
