A new revenue source between primary crops
Plus, all the soil benefits of a cover crop
Grown for certified low-carbon fuel feedstock
Nuseed Carinata is an independently certified sustainable low-carbon fuel feedstock that provides growers a new revenue source between main crops.
A non-food, revenue generating contract cover crop, Nuseed Carinata grows when our environment limits main crop production. It protects soil between harvest and next season’s planting, without displacing primary food crops or requiring additional farmland.

Rewards sustainable farming practices
Nuseed rewards growers for adopting and recording the sustainable farming practices required for independent RSB certification. This provides production traceability and greenhouse gas (GHG) quantification and additional shared value. Nuseed Carinata is crushed to extract its oil for use in sustainable, certified low-carbon biofuel. The remaining meal is a traceable source of non-GMO plant protein.
