SSGA | FIRST in its class: SSGA uses third-party field trials for assurance

When farmers plant – and end users buy – soybeans, they don’t want a mystery. They want to know exactly what they’re going to get. That’s where Farmers’ Independent Research of Seed Technologies (FIRST) comes in.

As a third-party company, FIRST provides unbiased comparisons of seed genetics, improving yield and profitability for corn and soybean growers. FIRST tests seed products in 15 states and uses field managers and their independent businesses to identify, plant and harvest over 500 tests across over 300 locations.
