Plants have the potential to solve tough problems.
Agriculture has experienced several key inflection points in its history. Mechanization in the 50s and the ‘Green Revolution’ of fertility and crop protection chemistry in the 70s and 80s resulted in increases in harvested crop volume. Key advancements in hybrid genetics in the 80s and early 2000s, followed by the biotech ‘input’ era that started around 2000, led to a dramatic upsurge in the ability of agriculture to feed the growing world population.
We are now at a point in history when breeding advances, technology and a tremendous amount of hard-won knowledge are enabling us to move beyond incremental improvements in crops as commodities.
Nuseed’s R&D and commercial teams are working globally to unlock the potential and deliver plant-based solutions for both our farm customers and end-use customers. We’ve focused on crops that grow in both hemispheres – canola, carinata, sorghum, and sunflowers and it’s already paying off.

In 2019-2020 alone, Nuseed commercialized two proprietary crops for very specific and value-added end-use markets. Nuseed Carinata is now commercially grown in Argentina for renewable fuel and Nuseed Omega-3 Canola is grown in Montana and North Dakota as a sustainable land-based source of the essential omega-3 nutrient for aquafeed (Aquaterra) and human nutrition (Nutriterra). In addition to two new Nuseed Omega-3 Canola varieties, we also introduced our first commercial canola hybrids in Canada and the U.S. Along with our sunflower portfolio, offering hybrids right for every field and every market, we are working hard to provide our North American farm customers with Golden Opportunities.
Through the combination of successful local seeds businesses, global reach, world-class R&D, and the Nuseed Value Chains connecting growers, industry, and end-use customers, Nuseed is already delivering VALUE BEYOND YIELD® in the current Golden Era of Agriculture.
