Field-Proven Precision Breeding

Of course, you’ll evaluate how different products perform in your fields. But our large, data-driven breeding program helps you get the most out of each one. We thoroughly evaluate products based on the latest science and use extensive field testing to increase yield potential and minimize risk.

    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.
