Lincolnville has new seed-cleaning plant
Agri Producers Inc. is building a new seed-cleaning plant in Lincolnville. It will replace an aging plant at the Herington facility.
According to Perry Gutsch, manager of the Lincolnville elevator, the plant will have a seed-treatment component. The facility is expected to be completed in time this spring to treat bean seed. The treatment protects against damage from certain plant diseases and insects.
The plant will have the capacity to clean 700 to 800 bushels of wheat per hour.
Agri Producers serves the communities of Tampa, Durham, Lincolnville, Herington, Burdick, and Ramona.
