Guide to Seed Treatment: Pollinator Stewardship

As planting season begins across the country, KyCorn encourage farmers to be diligent in taking proper precautions to minimize pollinator exposure to treated seed.

When planting, be aware of the presence of honeybee hives, or crops or weeds in the flowering stage within or adjacent to the field.  Ensure that no blooming weeds are present in the field.  Avoid off-site movement of dust by observing wind speed and direction.  And finally, be sure to follow planting depth instructions, and observe plant-back guidelines found on the seed tag.

For more information, visit or contact your seed dealer.
