Grow with confidence

Your order from PanAmerican Seed contains high-quality seed with great performance, so you can be confident in the plants you grow.

Seed Form - Raw


This is seed in its natural form, with no enhancements. Examples include Tomato and Verbena.
Seed Form - De-Tailed


The “tail” on a seed can interfere with an automatic seed-sowing machine. By removing the tail, the seed has a smoother shape that is easier to handle. Marigolds are de-tailed.
Seed Form - Primed


Primed seed has had the germination process started, but it is stopped before the root protrudes through the seed coat; the seed is then dried down. Primed seed has more uniform growth and will germinate under a wide range of conditions. Examples include Pansy and Coreopsis.
Seed Form - Amplified


Seed that is enhanced through a proprietary process, resulting in faster and more uniform germination compared to non-enhanced seed. An example is Echinacea.
Seed Form - Coated


Seed is enhanced through a proprietary process in which a coating is applied to allow easier handling by the grower and in seeders. This is sometimes referred to as a “film coat” or a “slick coat”. Examples include Beacon® Impatiens and Marigolds.
Seed Form - Treated


Thiram is applied to the seed for disease control and protection against multiple seedborne and soilborne fungi. The seed is sealed, has no shape or size change, and no dust rubs off. Examples include Sunflower.
Seed Form - Pelleted


Pelleted seed has been enhanced through a proprietary process where multiple layers of a yellow pelleting material are applied to increase the size and make the seed more spherical. This improves visibility and makes seeder pickup easier. Examples include Petunia and Begonia.
Seed Form - Multi-Seed Pellet and Multi-Species Multi-Pellet

Multi-Seed Pellet and Multi-Species Multi-Pellet

Multi-seed pellet undergoes a similar process to pelleted but combines multiple seeds in one pellet. An example of this is Alyssum. Multi-species multi-pellet combine seeds from multiple species into one pellet, essentially providing a pre-formed mixed container in a pellet. An example of this is SimplySalad®.
Precision™ Multi-Seed Pellet

Precision™ Multi-Seed Pellet

This form is offered when we want to supply a precise number of seeds in a multi-seed pellet. Each seed is pelleted first, then combined with others into a larger pellet. When the multi-seed form is used for multi-species combinations, we can ensure that a precise number of seeds of each variety of the mix is in every PMPL. An example of this would be SimplyHerbs™.

Seed Pelleting, Priming & Testing

Today, billions of seeds are coated, pelleted, primed and tested before we sell it to you. You can expect reduced shrink, reduced cost and improved yield using these processes.
