Gateway FS Construction Services seed systems

Project Profile: Illinois to Louisiana

At FS Construction Services, we like to hold to a pretty generous definition of the word neighbor. Sometimes our neighbor is next door, sometimes they’re a county away. But we’ve made it our mission to support the great work done in our neighborhood. So when we get a call from Ferriday, Louisiana asking us for help with a seed systems upgrade, well, then they get to be our neighbors too.

At the beginning of this year, we were asked to perform a total system upgrade for a seed treatment company in The Pelican State. They wanted to upgrade their box-to-box system to a fully-automated bulk system. Naturally, Justen Kempfer our Seed Treatment specialist, agreed, and he and his team drove the nine hours to begin working. The biggest step was installing a USC Tri-Flo Continuous Scale hopper, which incorporated a prescriptive treatment chemical delivery system. This allows each ingredient to be on its own pump stand, and can meter the right amount of chemical per tank for each unit of soybean treated. Despite the distance, FS Construction Services was able to complete the project in plenty of time for our client to be ready to go for the coming season. To guarantee this, Justen worked with them to calibrate and set their system up, and then provided complete training on the new system to ensure confidence and success moving forward.

At the end of the day, this system is the fastest, most accurate seed treatment system on the market. We even installed a Tri-States Grain Conditioning monitoring system inside the bulk bins to deal with the volatile Louisiana temperatures. Now our client will be able to monitor and control their seed temperature and moisture all year long.

If you are in need of a new seed system, or an upgrade of an existing system, even if you live a couple states away, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.
