Silos[url=http://tatiaraseeds.1stba.se/services/seed-processing][size=150]Seed Processing[/size][/url]

From the time the seed arrives by truck, it  is carefully tracked. Having been weighed and the moisture tested, any  drying is carried out before it is delivered into the cleaning system,  or temporarily stored in one of 120 silos.

Westrup machine

The  Westrup screen/air machine is first in the processing system. It is a  system of vibrating screens through which the seed travels, and stubble,  weed seeds, plant debris, dirt and stones, insects, husks and any  other contaminants are removed. Indent cylinders separate short from long  seeds, and the gravity table separates light from heavy.

Velvet Rollers

Should  a line of seed pose a problem, Tatiara Seeds can meet that challenge  with specialised equipment including five sets of velvet rollers and  three double spirals. Velvet rollers separate seed by surface type and  do an excellent job of removing dock, wireweed and yellow burr weed from  lucerne, persian and white clovers. The spirals separate flat from  round seed.

Gravity Machine

When the seed is clean, it is  either kept in bulk or bagged for storage in our  warehouse. From there it is loaded into containers for export, or  despatched to Australian destinations.

Robotic Palletiser

The on-site seed laboratory can check for germination and purity of the seed.
Tatiara  Seeds organises all the paperwork for the seed, including inspection of  containers, arranging AQIS testing of seed, sending samples for  official purity and germination testing, and tracking of the product at  every stage.

Tatiara Seeds purchased its first grain dryer  in 1985. Since then demand for drying seed has increased to such an  extent that there are 3 Vertec grain dryers available to dry any type of  seed. Lucerne and Phalaris seed growers are the greatest users of the  grain dryers to remove moisture so that the seed can be safely stored.

The  grain dryers use gas to heat and dry the air which then passes through  the seed, taking moisture with it. The temperature is carefully  monitored so that germination is not affected.


The  cost is determined by the size of the lot, the amount of moisture to be  removed, the type of seed and the amount of gas used.

Graham Ramsdale or Peter Maddern are available to discuss any needs relating to drying seed.
