Seed innovations allow us to continue to produce healthy and nutritious food.
Researchers are continuously working to develop seed innovations that allow us to produce crops with increased nutrition, better flavor profiles, improved shipping and shelf life, allowing food to stay fresh longer and have more consistent quality.
Seed innovations allow us to feed and cloth a growing population.
Seed innovations allow us to maximize the genetic potential of seed, allowing us to produce more food and textiles from the same land, which is essential to feed our growing population.
Seed innovations are improving our resource efficiency.
Over the past 35 years, seed innovations have reduced the amount of land used per bushel produced while also reducing soil erosion, water and energy use, as well as reducing greenhouse emissions. Source: fieldtomarket.org
