Superior genetics… To claim that Nuseed has a “focus on sunflower” would be easy. The fact is that our actions speak louder than words. We have top notch breeding programs in Australia, Argentina, Serbia; Minnesota and California in the US.  Nuseed’s diverse germplasm stocks provide opportunities that few other companies (if any) can match. With our unique genetics we create superior hybrids that are suited to local growing conditions. Growers can look forward to new product releases across the sunflower spectrum including: confection and dehull varieties, all carrying herbicide tolerant traits, and Hi Oleic oil sunflower with higher oil and oleic scores. As disease tolerance and agronomic attributes improve, growers put more grain in the bin. Nuseed’s Sunflower focus strengthens our customer relationships by providing new and better hybrids that meet producers needs, and improve their bottom line.
