Seed treatment in Flanders

abstract
Seed coated with fungicide or insecticide active ingredients are very efficient in the cultivation of many crops. Seed treatment is a preventive measure, which makes post-emergence foliar treatments less necessary. Due to the target action, the technology should be seen as part of integrated pest management. Seed treatment is considered to be the most environmentally friendly form of chemical crop protection. The applied dose per hectare is limited to the seeds themselves, and is very low in comparison with leaf or soil spraying. Recently, seed treatment has been questioned because of possible side effects on bee. During this study, residue-analysis were carried out to detect the most common active substances used for seed treatment in the main crops (maize, beets and wheat). Based on these results, the impact of the use of treated seeds in the cultivation of the major crops in Flanders (maize, beets and wheat) on human and environment is examined.
