Broad Germplasm

It all starts with plant breeding. Germplasm is the building block for better products. When beginning the breeding process, we start with a large genetic pool of possible products, narrow them down in less time and test more high-potential top performers in fields like yours.

Pre-Commercial Testing

In this phase, we begin selecting the products to undergo local testing. We use local breeding and technology development plots to understand early product potential and determine which products perform best under differing agronomic conditions.

Local Testing

With assistance from our Gold Country Seed technical agronomists, we select a handful of products to test in Gold Country Seed® trials. Before a product is brought to market, we test and monitor them across hundreds of field scenarios in your local area.

Adding to the Gold Country Seed® Product Lineup

After local testing, our technical agronomists select the products that performed the best across the area we serve. These products are introduced each year into our product lineup.

Gold Country Seed has given me consistent high-yielding corn and soybean yields across many different years of weather. I go to the field with the confidence that I am giving myself the best chance to succeed.
