Hybrid genetics provide the basis for sorghum tolerance to cold stress. High seed quality helps ensure that the seed will perform up to its genetic ability. Pioneer Seeds concentrate on selecting the best genetics for consistent performance across a wide range of environments including stressful conditions by utilising cold tolerance trial data.
Pioneer Seeds sorghum seed quality program starts in the production field and is present through every process at the Narromine plant. Our world class seed production procedures ensure that Pioneer Seeds has the highest quality sorghum seed with minimum germination rates of 85%. Please bear in mind that seed is a living product and must be treated as such.
Even with the best genetics and highest seed quality, environmental factors can still dictate seedling establishment.
