Growing opportunities

Nuseed’s global growth includes expansion in Canada.  We provide Canadian sunflower growers with leading confection and oil sunflower hybrids with proven performance available from our network of dependable Canadian distributors. After five years of local field trials we are introducing our first canola hybrid in Canada.  It’s the start of providing new choice and opportunities for Canadian canola growers.

Globally Nuseed delivers value BEYOND YIELD™ through dedicated service, locally proven canola, carinata, sorghum and sunflower seed for farm customers and new plant-based solutions for end-use customers.

Nuseed develops input traits for top agronomic performance while going beyond yield to commercialize plant output traits with new value and market opportunities. Nuseed’s Monola® and Omega-3 Canola, Onyx™ Sunflowers, Wholis™ and BMR Sorghum, and Carinata Renewable Fuel programs are global examples of OUR proprietary crops developed for specific end-uses and supplied by Nuseed Value Chains built through industry collaboration.

Breckenridge Nursery & Regional Office

Our sunflower hybrids are born and bred in the U.S., Nuseed’s regional office and sunflower nursery are in the heart of sunflower country near  Breckenridge, Minnesota.  We plant our nurseries in sunflower growing areas so that we have the same natural disease pressure as well as other factors that affect our customers’ crop. 

Developing new hybrids with different characteristics that perform and yield better than current options requires testing a huge number of hybrids. The program’s diversity and the variety of products the company is ready to move forward is unparalleled.  And it’s large enough to diversify across multiple seed types.
