Corteva Agriscience™ seed treatment recipes are tested using planting simulators in our CSAT labs, checking for accurate seed drop, singulation and placement.
Seed treatments developed in CSAT facilities undergo our exclusive PASSER process, a six-step evaluation that measures key performance and use factors for seed treatments.
Maximizing seed flow and
Corteva works closely with global regulatory agencies so that our seed treatment products meet regulatory guidelines and farmers have market access for crops harvested from treated seed.
Products and combinations aretested for consistent, uniform application, product adhesion and dust-off in a wide range of conditions.
Refining processes to work across seed properties (size,shape, hybrid/variety) and environmental conditions
Corteva seed treatment products are specially selected for their agronomic characteristics to complement seed genetics. Our scientists also study how biological seed treatment ingredients may be impacted by other products, ensuring they retain their activity.
Evaluating protection and vigor to confirm the seed treatment performs as expected, even in challenging environments
Corteva carefully investigates every seed treatment recipe for any potential negative effects on germination. Treatments are studied extensively in our research laboratories and greenhouses, on more than 60,000 plots annually, and in the fields of real farmers throughout our testing network.
Ensuring treatments don’t adversely affect seed germination
Corteva seed treatments are evaluated to ensure they minimize exposure to off-target species andfit with responsible farming practices.
