When pelleting seeds, each individual seed is covered with special powders. This coverage aims to produce a round pellet. All seeds now have a similar volumes and shape which makes it easier to plant or sow very precisely and results in a more even vegetation.
In Atlas and Agathos we offer different types of pellets, all having their own speciality for certain crops.
