GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, Dec. 1, 2020 – Kamterter Products, L.L.C. has won the 2020 FarMore® Vision Award for its dedication in providing essential support to the seed treatment industry.

The award is presented to companies that display excellence in their dedication to growers and their contributions to the seed treatment industry. Kamterter, an independently owned product development and seed enhancement service company based in Nebraska, brings a new generation of seed priming, seed lot refinement and seed coating technologies and services to the industry.

“Kamterter is honored to receive Syngenta’s FarMore Vision Award for 2020,” said Chris Petersen, president and director of research, Kamterter Products, L.L.C. “As a seed enhancement and coating service provider, Kamterter has a primary mission of helping those involved in the fruit and vegetable industry get the most value from their seeds.”

The company works with leading seed dealers and breeder producers throughout the fruit and vegetable industry. Flower, agronomic, turf and reclamation seed enhancement services are also available.
