Seeds & Traits
Developing and producing high-quality healthy seeds for farmers, commercial growers, and retailers.
Enabling Farmers to Grow Enough with Less
High-quality seeds ensure better and more productive crops, which is why farmers invest in them. In addition, advanced seeds help mitigate risks such as disease and drought and allow farmers to grow food using less land, less water, and fewer inputs.
We offer farmers tailored solutions – starting with seeds and traits – designed to improve their harvests and make their jobs easier. Our breeding program focuses on breeding and selecting a range of high-value crops, including quinoa, millet, amaranth, chia, and more.
Everything Starts with a Seed
Farmers around the world know that great harvests are enabled by high-quality seeds.
Our breeding program works to meet the challenges farmers face by harnessing the genetic diversity of crop families from around the world to help improve lives through better harvests and nutrition.
Our Research and Development (R&D) projects cover subjects such as diseases, pests, weed management, protein fractionation, and product development.
Our research is designed to improve the way crops are grown and protected so that everyone, from consumers to farmers, and the environment, benefits.
