Certifiable sustainable production
Small seed, contract grown to make a big impact
Big potential between main crops
Using certifiable sustainable production practices to plant a modest 1.5% of the estimated hectares of existing farmland currently available for cover cropping, in just Europe and the Americas, to Nuseed Carinata could make a substantial positive carbon impact for growers, our soil, and our climate .
*Based on Rabobank cover crop acre estimates for actual agriculture hectares in North America, Europe, Central and South America
**Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) would be manufactured/blended 50/50 in compliance with ASTM D7566 – Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuel Containing Synthesized Hydrocarbons
***Carinata estimate based on default life cycle emission value found in ICAO CORSIA Default Life Cycle Emissions Value for CORSIA Eligible Fuels – Nov 2021
Rewarding sustainable practices
Independently certifiable by the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) Nuseed Carinata production educates, supports and rewards contract growers for adopting and documenting required sustainable farming practices, like cover cropping, minimal tillage and low nitrogen use.
Our program includes in-field support and audited field records that verify sustainable farming practices, quantify field to fuel carbon savings, and enable customized contract production to specific end-use customer requirements.
Building strong Nuseed Value Chains
Nuseed teams across R&D, regulatory, and our regional seeds businesses work with farmers, industry partners, processors, and end-use customers to build supply chains into strong Nuseed Value Chains that are efficient, responsive, and sustainable. Nuseed also manages each step to add expertise, create shared value, and meet specific customer contract production requirements.
Growing global production
Our global Nuseed Carinata R&D and commercial programs are facilitated locally by Nuseed’s regional seeds businesses, where we are:
- Increasing commercial production in Argentina
- Planning South American commercial expansion
- Advancing commercial production in the United States
