Driving consistent quality products for western Canadian growers

Research and Development is the heart of our work at Proven Seed. It’s where we start and it’s how we continually improve and expand our seed offering. Our extensive research and development program includes dedicated researchers committed to providing consistent, high-quality seed products that meet the needs of growers across Western Canada.

Our purpose is to breed and supply 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.

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 Research and Development 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.
