Seeds and Garden Supplies- Cargo Desiccants To Preserve Seed Quality And Extend Shelf Life

When you are dealing with the packaging of seeds and gardening supplies such as seeds, live seeds, garden equipment, packaged garden products, and other sensitive items, it is essential to maintain optimum packaging, storing and transportation conditions to safeguard and protect these supplies effectively throughout their shelf life and till they reach their end user or process, and are suitable for ocean, truck, rail, and air shipping containers.

Cargo desiccant packs are used in the seeds and garden supplies industry during shipping to absorb moisture and maintain the quality of the products. These packs help prevent mold, bacteria, and moisture damage to seeds, gardening equipment, and other related items. For example, they can be added to seed storage containers to maintain the viability of the seeds by removing any remaining moisture after sealing the container.

Cargo Dry Pak are used to keep seeds, nuts, and other food items dry during storage, and transportation and can help preserve the quality of pet foods/fodder, prevent moisture damage in gardening gear, and protect items from humidity-related damage. That is why it is important to use desiccants as they have a highly porous structure and can effectively absorb over 300% of their weight in water vapor and moisture to maintain optimum moisture and humidity levels during the storage and transportation of the seeds and gardening supplies.

Applications of cargo desiccants in seeds and gardening supplies

Preserving seed quality

When it comes to packaging and storing seeds, live seeds, and germinated seeds, it is essential to maintain optimum conditions for them to retain their potency and stability during long durations of transit, storage, and transportation with high quality container desiccants. When you are transporting large quantities of seeds, you need to make sure that there is no internal condensation formation due to live or germinated seeds. Seeds, especially those intended for planting, need to remain viable during transportation, as excessive moisture can lead to premature germination or deterioration of seeds.

Preventing premature germination

Due to their extreme sensitivity to moisture, seeds can be negatively impacted by small adjustments in their viability or capacity to germinate. A surplus of moisture can cause decay, the formation of mold, and the loss of germination capability. Seeds retain their ability to germinate because desiccant packets efficiently remove moisture from the air within the shipping container, resulting in a drier atmosphere.

Prevention of the growth of mold and mildew

Moist environments are ideal breeding grounds for mold and fungi, which can quickly damage seeds, bulbs, and other organic materials. In humid environments, garden materials like fertilizer and potting soil are highly susceptible to the formation of mold and mildew. Cargo desiccants prevent these bacteria from growing, helping retain the efficiency of the goods arriving at their destination undamaged, and free from spoilage and moisture damage.

Preventing odors and musty smell

Since strong moisture content can cause musty smells to grow in enclosed containers, it is essential to keep your seeds and gardening materials fresh and to reduce aromas, Sorbipak container desiccants absorb high levels of moisture and stop condensation from forming inside the shipping container removing the possibilities of musty odors.

Provide packaging protection and extend shelf life

Cargo desiccants help extend the shelf life of some garden supplies, such as packaged soils and powdered fertilizers as certain garden supplies can harden or clump when exposed to moisture, and cargo desiccants help control humidity levels. This is especially important for companies that distribute products over extended distances or store inventory for long periods of time.

Sustainable, affordable, and regulatory compliant

Desiccants such as Silica gel are very common, highly absorbent materials, affordable options when dealing with large storage and transport quantities. Since the desiccant bags can be regenerated and reused multiple times, it is a sustainable material to be used to effectively protect seeds and gardening supplies. Some seeds and garden supplies may be subject to regulatory standards regarding moisture content, especially during import/export or long transit durations, thus it is best to use cargo desiccant packs.

To help retain, maintain, and enhance the shelf life of seeds and gardening supplies effectively, you can use high quality container desiccants from Desiccant Pak to safeguard them from the detrimental factors such as moisture, humidity, dust, heat, and contamination during long periods of packaging, storage, and transportation.
