Centor certainly made a splash

Centor certainly made a splash

This year ISF was held in at the Brisbane Convention Centre, Brisbane, Australia. The Centor Group displayed a very colourful booths this year. In keeping with the “splash” theme we included acrylic coloured cut out splashes which were placed around the booth and created great interest from visitors. Also on display was our Lab FlowTek and Mobile Chlorophyll Analyser.

There was a great deal of interest shown in our polymer products that really tackle the important issue of dust from treated seeds. The Centor Group can offer some of the best products in the market for reducing dust. Also launched at ISF was FORTIFI – which is used to securely bind active components to canola and sunflower seed, or can be used as a pellet sealer in which Fortifi forms a sealing shell to enclose the pellet as well as a range of organic and biobased products.

We would like to thank the hundreds of visitors to our booth, if you didn’t make it to see us here, feel free to contact us, or perhaps we will see you at the next ISF or next APSA congress?

Measuring seed flow using a small amount of seed? Centor Oceania has developed a lab scale seed flowability tester which can do just that, by using the flow meter you can distinguish between seed treatments with a high degree of accuracy.

Seed technology comes in many different forms; the Centor Group is able to cover this wide range to offer better services and products that integrate.

To complement our existing range of SeedworxTM polymers we can also offer customised seed coating materials whether your requirement is for film-coating, encrusting or pelleting. Seed treatment machinery from simple manual pan coaters to the more advance fully automated rotary coating systems form part of the Centor Group’s product offering, including seed dryers; from batch to continuous systems. Analytical classification and sorting equipment which work on chlorophyll content, or more visual cues such as size, shape and colour are available, as well as density sorting equipment. If you have an interest in seed vigour then the VIM oxygen use analyser or the Mobile Chlorophyll Analyser (MCA) might be of more interest. Data loggers, from single-use, through temp and RH USB devices to full systems to help with your data collection needs, or those with Wi-Fi connections, suitable for use in tough conditions.

We look forward to seeing you at our booths 604 & 605 at ISF in Brisbane where you can experience the latest innovations in seed technologies.
