Although most of these products must be applied by certified seed treaters, there many commercial seed treaters throughout the province. If your seed supplier is not certified to apply a seed treatment, contact the Ministry of Agriculture for seed treaters in your area.

Some seed treatments can be combined; check the product labels or the Saskatchewan Agriculture Guide to Crop Protection for specific details about possible combinations of products.

Treated mustard seed stored longer than 6 months should be tested for germination prior to planting, as storing treated seed beyond recommended storage conditions may negatively impact germination compared to untreated seed. Storage limitations may differ for each product.
