¡No Treated Soybeans!
Quality Roasting, Inc. cannot emphasize strong enough how growers must have dedicated equipment for treated seed; referring to trailers, wagons, trucks, or any other equipment you may use for your seed. Dedicated seed equipment must never, ever be used to haul grain. The risk to the grower is extremely high. It just takes one treated soybean in a load to reject the entire load. You will be held responsible for any storage bin that treated soybean would be transferred to.
For example: A bin at Quality Roasting, Inc. holds 250,000 bushels. If you deliver a load of soybeans that has one contaminated bean in it, and that one bean reaches our 250,000 bushel bin; you, the grower that delivered that contaminated load of soybeans, would be responsible for all 250,000 bushels x the current price. Using a conservative price of $8.30 per bushel, that would calculate to the amount of $2,075,000; plus clean up, disposal, and any compromised contract concerns. This is not a situation Quality Roasting, Inc. ever wants to experience with one of our growers.
Please use dedicated equipment for your treated seed and NEVER haul any grain with your dedicated equipment. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our office.
