Among the several different types of seed treatment machines farmers can select from for their own operations, the one that offers the most flexible solution is the Box to Box Seed Treater. Basic models are priced lower than commercial drum treaters, and the most attractive feature of this design is that additional units can be added over time to expand processing capability as the needs of the farm grow over time.
So What Is A B2B Seed Treater?
At its most basic, a box-to-box seed treater is simply a machine with a minimum two bins in the configuration. One seed bin is equipped with agitators and chemical spray jets, while the other is the drying bin that takes the processed seed and holds it until the curing time is completed.
B2B seed treaters come in several capacities. They can be installed anywhere within the main compound or barn. Their basic design ensures the lowest price compared to other types of seed treatment processors, but the main advantage of this configuration is that it is essentially modular.
The Flexible Option
For any farmer who wants to control the treatment of his seed stock but does not have a need or the ability to purchase a large commercial unit, a box-to-box treatment machine is by and far the best choice to make. The variety of selections in terms of processing capacity allows the farmer to choose the unit that best suits his immediate needs. A single B2B unit that can handle 2500 units of seed per season is sufficient to do the job for most independent farmers.
When the farmer’s needs begin to expand, he can either trade his small B2B unit for a higher capacity machine, or he can add more units of the same capacity as required. He can use the additional units to process more seed in bulk or he can use each one to apply a different treatment in stages. This allows the farmer to gradually acquire an “assembly line” to process seed with several different chemical agents, and to add processors gradually over the course of time as farm income allows.
