 Practices to properly store and dispose of treated seed include the following:
  • If you are treating bulk seed on the farm, treat only as much as you need for immediate use.
  • For temporary storage on the farm, place the seed in a secure, sealed container.
  • If you purchased treated seed and have leftover seed in unopened bags, return the bags to the dealer.
  • If you have leftover treated seed that cannot be returned to a dealer, plant the seed at a rate not exceeding three times the normal seeding rate, or contact a regional sanitary landfill for authorization to bring the seed to the landfill for immediate burial.
