Precision

Precision, as the name implies, is precision seed. Precision must comply with the most stringent quality requirements. The chicory witloof seed is of a uniform size, and has a high germinative capacity.

Primed

Priming is the activation of the germination process with the objective of ensuring that the treated seed germinates more rapidly and/or uniformly after sowing. In addition, this promotes the development of a more uniform crop: a more accurate timing of weed-control procedures is then feasible.

Minipill / pelleted seed

Pelleting is enclosing the seed in a filler to change its shape. The primary objective is to improve the sowability of the seed. In addition, other compounds can be added. Chicosem sells the minipill 1.80-2.20 mm.

Coating

Film coating is a full covering, usually pigmented layer, around the seed. The original seed form remains intact. Additional ingredients may be added.

Not chemically treated (NCB)

The NCB coating is non-chemical treatment. NCB stands for “non-chemically treated” seed. The sole purpose of this coating is to improve the sowability and findability of the seed.

Fungicide (FC)

Fungicide coating is a covering film coating that contains one or more fungicides. These fungicides protect the seed from germ and soil fungi during germination.

Insecticide (IC)

Insecticide coating is a covering film coating in which an insecticide is incorporated. The insecticide has an effect on a number of soil insects.

ESA minimum recommended standards for cichorium intybus var foliosum

ESA minimum recommended standards for cichorium intybus var foliosum are:
Germinative capacity of precision seed = 85%
Germinative capacity of pelleted seed = 85%

These product specifications are not meant to be absolute minimum standards for delivery. If the quality tests of Chicosem (c.q. Hoquet/Endinor) indicate a lower quality-level than given in these specifications, Chicosem will inform prospective seed users. This communication is aimed at informing professional seed users about the quality they can expect, so they can make their own assessment and decide if these seeds meet their requirements.
