GROWERS MAY now purchase soybean seeds in 140,000 seed units from Syngenta Seeds. The traditional 50-lb. units are still available. Called EZ-Count, the 140,000-seed unit is considered a more accurate way to purchase seed because it eliminates the variations in seed size and weight. The weight of EZ-Count units will vary, but the total number of seeds will be 140,000.
EZ-Count is available on all new NK soybean varieties for 2010 and the full line of NK brand soybeans in 2011. EZ-Count will be sold only in paper bags, bulk bags and Q-Bit boxes this year, but will be offered in all packages next year.
