Bayer opens ST centre in Argentina
Bayer CropScience has inaugurated its seed treatment application centre (STAC) in Buenos Aires province, Argentina. The STAC will offer an integrated range of services to the maize and sunflower seed industry and to soybean and wheat seed multipliers, including technical support and application training. The centre has state-of-the–art facilities, allowing formulation analyses, film coating, quality control studies, and leading seed treatment application equipment supplied by Bayer associate Gustafson, the company says. Bayer claims the centre makes it the national reference point for seed treatment application technology. It has four other such centres, one each in Australia, Brazil, Germany and the US.
