Brazilian agricultural co-operative, Cotrijal, has inaugurated a new industrial seed treatment machine, a structure installed in partnership with Bayer at the cooperative's Seed Processing Unit (UBS), in No-Me-Toque, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Cotrijal president Nei César Mânica pointed out that this second equipment installed will double Cotrijal's seed treatment capacity. "UBS already had a treatment machine, but we want to grow, and the cooperative's project is expected to reach 1 million bags by 2020," he said.
He mentioned that Cotrijal's goal is to get quality seeds to the field to help the producers increase their productivity. "We have worked to deliver a material of excellence, so much so that Cotrijal seed has been recognized for the second year in a row with certification of seed quality at the national level," he said.
The event was attended by the management of Cotrijal, superintendents, managers, employees, advisers, core leaders and other associates, as well as representatives of Bayer.
Mario Henrique Lussari, leader of Bayer SeedGrowth, emphasized the partnership with Cotrijal and the technology used in the new industrial seed treatment machine, which is already in operation. "The expansion of seed treatment in the State proves the relevance of the work we are doing with the cooperatives." The Gaucho producer is undoubtedly extremely attentive to technology and wants to be always ahead of market innovations. Cotrijal is very pertinent and we believe it will bring satisfaction to the cooperative, "concluded Lussari.
