Aug. 31, 2012, Research Triangle Park, NC — Bayer CropScience is introducing new online learning modules in order to streamline information access for growers.

The new seed treatment equipment website features fully updated information for Bayer's seed treatment suite of services, including On Demand, commercial batch treaters and downstream drum treaters. Current and prospective users of Bayer seed treatment equipment can visit the website to review the company's equipment catalogue, find solutions for specific crops, keep up with crop news and events, reach customer support, or find the appropriate seed treatment system based on their unique needs.

"Feeding our hungry planet starts with protecting a farmers' seeds from day one. We are a leader within the industry supporting customers with high quality seed, innovative seed treatment products, application equipment, film coatings, technical support and training," said Matthias Haug, global head of seed treatment at Bayer CropScience.


Bayer's integrated approach is designed to offer sustainable systems and solutions and training for meeting the needs of a changing agricultural world. On Demand from Bayer helps ensure seed treatments such as Poncho/VOTiVO are applied correctly and consistently, resulting in healthier plant establishment.

Earlier this month, Bayer also launched Poncho/VOTiVO online learning module for growers, agronomists and seed retailers. The online module provides information that allows growers and seed retailers to focus on four key areas, including: Poncho/VOTiVO; performance advantages of Poncho VOTiVO; On Demand, including a two-minute video that talks through the equipment and how it ties into seed treatment; and stewardship.
