USING HERMETIC STORAGE TO PRESERVE PADDY SEEDS IN PANAMA
Fincas Azuero in Panama found a way to properly store paddy seeds and retain seed germination thanks to GrainPro and its distributor Potuga. Five 100MT GrainPro® Self-Verifying Cocoons™ (SVC) are preserving 82 tons (180,000 pounds) of certified paddy seeds at their facility in Panama. Research and field trials show that Cocoons can store seeds as well as conventional cold stores. The patented SVC is an Ultra Hermetic™ storage solution for the long-term storage of bagged seeds and other agricultural commodities. It can be installed outdoors or indoors, and requires minimal cost to install and use. For more information about this product and worldwide distributors, please visit www.grainpro.com.
