Beyond the Seed
Seed = Value Today & Innovation for Tomorrow

Consider these facts for how innovation, commitment and performance in seed have improved yields, profitability and stewardship
on farms across the country:

  • Improvements in genetics, breeding and biological advances account for half the yield gains in the major row crops in the last 75 years
  • Genetic enhancements help the bottom line of growers – and consumers. Producer gains in the five major crops are estimated at $160 million annually
  • Advances in seed technology have reduced soil erosion by 1 billion tons, pesticide usage by 62 million pounds, fuel use by 475 million gallons and carbon dioxide emissions by more than 22 billion pounds
