Core Function

Seed treatment should never impact the inherent quality of a seed. The Seed Safety function is devoted to ensuring this remains so. Our experts create diverse seed safety programs covering regionally-specific needs so we can evaluate and limit the potential impact of seed product combinations on seeds. As part of our assurance to customers, all our seed testing protocols are aligned with the major officially-recognized seed-testing organizations globally. Our efforts in this function also involve in-depth investigations into biological interaction to identify positive effects. We do this by selecting the highest quality partner laboratories to deliver full and neutral assessments and data for our customers.
