Columbia Grain International (CGI) has announced the launch of its Seed and Agronomy Program, aimed at providing farmers with high-quality seeds and comprehensive agronomy support to ensure successful harvests. This new program is designed to meet the growing demand from farmers for expert advice on fertility, soil health, and weed and pest control, alongside their seed purchases.

The Seed and Agronomy Program offers an end-to-end solution, encompassing expert agronomy forecasts, high-quality seeds, seed advising, and guidance throughout the entire harvest cycle. CGI's program includes certified and conditioned seeds and certified crop advisor services informed by extensive field research. These services include regular visits to review soil and crop health, problem-solving, and identifying market opportunities, fostering long-term partnerships through dedicated support and a bidirectional flow of information.

"Our new Seed and Agronomy Program makes growing better for everybody. Importantly, it gives farmers high-quality, certified and conditioned seeds hand-selected for their growing conditions, and guidance throughout the entire growing cycle,” said Madison Fritz, a Montana-based Seed Agronomist and Certified Crop Advisor for CGI.

Fritz added, “The program also provides buyers with confidence, transparency, and crop data throughout the year. Dedicating this kind of support to all of our stakeholders benefits not only our producer and buyer partners but the industry as a whole."

Columbia Grain's Seed and Agronomy Program is set to evolve as more producer partnerships are established and additional seed and agronomy experts are hired. This innovative program aims to cultivate partnerships and information exchanges that enhance crop health and profitability for all involved.
