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 .

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

Initial research and market development programs are also underway in  Europe  and  Australia .
