With over 95 years in the seed business, no one understands the need to win the start better than us.
Corteva Agriscience works to discover new actives for seed protection, drawing on the world-class Corteva research pipeline and the resources of strategic collaborators who are on the cutting edge of seed protection innovations. At our Centre for Seed Applied Technologies (CSAT)—with locations around the world—Corteva screens a diverse range of technologies, looking for new ingredients with the most valuable characteristics and modes of action to meet farmers’ needs.
Among the hundreds of possible product combinations we evaluate, Corteva only brings seed treatments to market that are proven to solve on-farm challenges. Every product formulation is thoroughly tested in the lab and in the field to get a complete understanding of its characteristics and benefits, and ensure it performs to expectations.
Corteva seed treatment products help plants reach their full genetic potential and add value to seed. Products are supported by our team of scientists dedicated to seed-applied technology and our rigorous six-step PASSER process which evaluates every formulation for plantability, application, seed safety, stewardship, efficacy and regulatory factors to ensure the highest-quality seed protection.
We know that performance of the seed treatment is #1, but performance relies on the ability to easily, properly and safely apply the product. That’s why we developed our exclusive PASSER process, for Customer-Focused Recipe Development.
