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 larger 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 Stone Seed technical agronomists, we select a handful of products to test in Stone 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 Stone 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 lineup.

Stone Seed has proven performance year over year, exceeding any competitive brand we have compared side by side. We first tried Stone Seed with only six bags of corn four years ago, and we are now 100 percent. Stone Seed performance, consistency and customer service is top-notch compared to the competition.
