Our products

The company is growing agriculture by offering farmers superior solutions, expanded choice and greater value. 

  • Seed solutions: We sell seeds that make better food, including alfalfa, canola, cereals, corn, cotton, rice, silage inoculants, sorghum, soya beans, sunflowers and wheat.
  • Crop protection solutions: We help farmers get higher yields by protecting crops and the environment, which is achieved by using herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, pasture and land management, seed applied technologies, urban pest management, turf and ornamental pest management.
  • Digital services: We use data and analytics to make sure that next year is even better. This include software for growers to build and sustain stronger businesses by maximising yield with data-driven crop models, improving teamwork efficiency and communication, measuring profit down to the field-level and simplifying farmland research and transactions.
