Canadian Sunflower

2016 Canada Products and Markets

Since 2001 SEEDS 2000 has had many Customer Approved “First to Market” hybrids, And, equally important Processor Approved “First to Market” hybrids. And beginning in 2015, Nuseed Americas has another industry “First” – 9180 DMR, the industry’s first Express Tolerant long type confection.

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; and 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 High Oleic oil products 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.
