AGI SureTrack is recognizing exceptional seed varieties in the Battle of the Seed (BOTS) contest and giving seed producers the opportunity to gain some notoriety and some additional profit this year.
Geared to distinguish the most valuable seed varieties both on the farm and in the marketing channel, AGI SureTrack is providing grower and seed producer contestants the protein, starch and oil content information they need to identify high-value markets for their seed and grain. The grain composition data each sample provides, allows a grower the ability to maximize their returns by growing for a purpose rather than yield, alone.
Battle of the Seed will award prizes for highest protein, oil and starch for corn and soybeans. By partnering with IP Production Facilities to sponsor each BOTS category, the importance of characteristic is abundantly clear. Seed characteristics and ingredient integrity are important enough to these companies that they pay premiums for a specific characteristic, thus delivering more profit to growers and a better product to the consumer.
To enter, contestants can drop off a crop sample at any AGI SureTrack conference booth, hand it to your territory manager or mail it directly to the AGI SureTrack Grain Lab.
