Custom Harvesting: Hancock Seed Company is a grower, harvester, processor and distributor of many types of crop and field seeds that are used in residential, commercial and agricultural applications. To have our company harvest seed on a share crop basis we require a minimum of 100 acres located within a 200 mile radius of our processing plant in Dade City, Florida.
To insure for a successful seed production every year, burning is a guaranteed way to help. Agricultural burning is defined as the burning of vegetative debris from agricultural operations necessary for disease or pest control, crop propagation, or crop rotation, or where identified as a best management practice.
Why you should grow Bahiagrass for harvest? In the last few years Bahiagrass production has slowly decreased and market price has rapidly increased. Severe weather has played a big part in decrease in production. Hancock Seed Company will assist the grower in the production of Argentine or Pensacola Bahiagrass Seed prior to harvest. Our company will determine what fertilizer should be used and when the seed is ready to harvest. After we harvest the seed we transport the seed to our processing plant. The seed will be spread over the drying bins and dried the same night it was harvested. The next day the seed is processed and placed in 50 lb bags for testing. Private and State tests are performed at the harvesters expense. The bags are labeled with lot numbers that correspond with the person’s seed we harvested. The seed will be split 50% to the grower and 50% to the harvester. The process of share cropping has been very successful over the past thirty years.
