The modern farmer faces more challenges than ever, including food safety, labor cost and availability, new ag technology, emerging pest and pathology, and rapid changes in climate. Gowan Seed’s product development team supports farmers throughout the United States and Mexico with product knowledge and trial data that takes the challenge out of making seed variety selection decisions.
Each year our team conducts over 1600 robust trials on over 50 different vegetable seed crops. Attributes are evaluated on more than 1200 new seed varieties annually for market potential, disease resistance and microclimate adaptability. The Gowan Seed product development team also collaborates with plant breeders all over the world to identify and introduce pedigree, hybrid seed products and seed technologies to our grower and processor customer base.
