The Nutrien Ag Solutions Research, Development and Innovation program is dedicated to breeding and supplying a pipeline of elite varieties for Proven Seed. We start with the best germplasm in order to deliver the best seed products with the best traits. We put every variety and hybrid through rigorous testing before making them available through the Nutrien Ag Solutions network of retailers.
Our program includes dedicated researchers committed to providing consistent, high-quality products to meet the needs of our customers.
Canola is a focal point of our world-class research program. Cereal research continues to be a key component of our program, and we’re increasing our work in corn and soybeans as those acres continue to rise in Western Canada. Every year, we test these products in more than 60 farmer-run Field Performance Checks and Local Performance Checks, to bring local data to farmers.
The Nutrien Ag Solutions R&D team has a strong history of continuous Canadian research – building momentum for two decades. Our team includes more than 50 dedicated staff in Canada and Australia – many with more than 15 years with our research program – plus more than 25 seasonal employees from top agricultural schools in Canada.
