REVIEW FROM THE INDIAN SEED CONGRESS 2023
Centor Oceania’s Global Sales & Business Development Manager, Darren Driscoll, spent almost 2 weeks in India visiting customers in New Delhi and attending the Indian Seed Congress in early March.
The ISC is the largest seed congress held in Southeast Asia, with 300+ delegates attending, representing around 150 companies.
Darren also travelled to Hyderabad and spent time with the Centor India sales team conducting training, planning meetings, and visiting customers. The key focus was to understand the market, customers, the challenges, and opportunities, of which Darren said there were many.

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT YOUR SEED COATINGS
Centor Oceania launched a new marketing campaign titled
‘Take A Closer Look’ which commenced in February.
The objective of this campaign is to invite seed treatment companies to take a closer look at what Centor Oceania has to offer.
“At the same time, we are giving them an opportunity to take a closer look at their coating requirements or how we can help improve their product,” says Centor Oceania global sales and business development manager, Darren Driscoll.

Another busy year ahead supplying our Australian designed Lab FlowTek Meters which are shipped all over the world.
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. The Lab Flow Tek will measure how quickly seed will pass through equipment, it will also let you know if there will be any issues with bridging in hoppers as well as gauging plantability in the field.
This year the 2020 APSA seed conference will hold Virtual Technical Sessions. Centor Oceania are proud to announce that we will be one of several companies sponsoring the session on Seed Technology to be held on Monday the 23rd of November 2020.

We look forward to continuing to work closely with all involved in the Australian seed industry.

CAN YOU AFFORD NOT TO have a dust off test to improve your seed coat?
Centor Oceania offers a treated seed dust off measurement service, using the Heubach Dustmeter. Seed is placed into a chamber which is rotated while air is being pulled across the tumbling seed.
Measurement of the amount of dust can be taken to accurately determine how well the coating is adhered to the seed surface.
