|What is thiram? It was written on a seed packet of peas, with the warning do not use for feed, food or oil purposes - don't contact skin. Can I use these seeds?
|Thiram is a chemical often used to treat certain seeds, such as peas, that are prone to rotting in cold, wet soil. It protects them from rotting. Only seeds intended for planting can be treated with it, not seeds intended for food purposes. Follow the label instructions with regard to handling them.
