There are many benefits of purchasing new seed:
Purchasing new seed is a convenient way to ensure
getting a product that is highest quality and highest yielding
vs. bin run. Our seed meets strict quality
standards, and you can rest assured that every bag is
professionally handled and rigorously tested. Buying new
seed dramatically reduces splits and foreign matter and
ensures varietal purity because we use germination tests to
ensure piece of mind. New seed is also weed free.
The economics of buying new seed vs. bin run beans is a
no-brainer. The average loss associated with
clean-out is 10-15% for bin run soybeans, and bin run planting
rates are generally 15% higher than new certified seed.
There are some limited warranty benefits associated with
buying new seed. With new seed, you get dealer
agronomic support before and after the sale. With the
purchase of a Roundup® brand
herbicide, you can participate in the Roundup Rewards®
program, which has paid out over $500 Million to growers since
1997. Buying new seed supports new innovations.
Monsanto's research and development spend in 2005 was $588
Million. New trait introductions take 7-9 years for
commercialization and cost $50-100 Million. Be smart.
Buy New Seed.
