Run Variety Trials on SeedLinked

SeedLinked Collaborative Variety Trial Services are an affordable way to reduce cost in your trialing program while drastically improving geographic granularity of data. Our variety testing methods have tight correlations to standard research station trials and offer better year-over-year and on-farm reliability. At the same time, they come in at a lower cost and have the added benefit of increasing grower awareness of your products.   

From university and extension variety trials, to early-stage collaborative breeding projects, to products at the end of the breeding pipeline facing their final tests and getting ready for launch, SeedLinked has powerful tools to incorporate into your trialing program.

“SeedLinked made a dramatic difference in our ability to facilitate on-farm trials across a broader geographic region, efficiently capture farmers’ observations, and provide useful and timely trial results to our constituents. It has drastically cut down on the amount of time our research team spends on data collection, analysis, and dissemination of results, while also improving the quality of results and outreach we are able to offer.”

-Alex Lyon, CANOVI Variety Trial Network Coordinator, University of British Columbia

We’ve helped institutions and seed companies run over 580 collaborative variety trials with 49K plots at 5,500 grower sites across North America since we launched our variety trialing software in 2018. Our trials have helped characterize over 1,400 vegetable varieties across 40+ crops for both agronomic and flavor traits. By feeding grower-generated performance data into product commercialization pipelines pre-launch, we can speed up time to market, reduce trialing program cost, and improve the year-over-year and on-farm reliability of trial data.

“SeedLinked has enabled us to unleash the potential of our ADAPT Community Science Program by transforming the way we collect, share, and use information.”
