Celebrating 50 Years of Seed Coating Success in the UK

Germains seed coating success in the American market was noted by British Sugar and in 1960 the company was invited to take part in cooperative trials against European competitors to determine the most appropriate seed coating for the UK’ sugar beet crops. After three years trialling, the Germains Filcoat pellet was considered to be the best product and was subsequently recommended by British Sugar as their pellet of choice. In 1966, Germains opened its first UK Sugar Beet pelleting facility in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, this year marks our 50th anniversary of production.
