Corteva Agriscience launches new Brevant seed brand

INDIANAPOLIS — Corteva Agriscience announced the launch of Brevant seeds, a high-performance corn and soybean brand available exclusively at retail locations in the Midwest and eastern Corn Belt.

Brevant is built on a century of agricultural experience, science and support from Corteva. The new brand will expand retail’s access to Corteva Agriscience genetics, traits and technology.

Brevant brand seed will be available to order this summer for 2021 planting. Brevant seeds will offer more than 200 corn hybrids and soybean varieties.

“Brevant brings a completely new and unique opportunity to retailers and their customers,” said Jason Dodd, general manager for Brevant. “It’s the right combination of people and products from an organization that truly cares about your individual success. Access to Corteva Agriscience’s genetics and deep germplasm pool through Brevant will be a great new advantage to retail customers.”

Committed To Retailers And Their Customers

The launch of Brevant and the exclusive retail route-to-market in the Midwest and eastern Corn Belt brings a new, agile way of doing business with Corteva. This includes a new field structure with sales and agronomy roles and a sales process driven by retail development teams.

“We are introducing the Brevant brand for farmers who prefer the service and local expertise that retail brings to their farm,” said Mike Lozier, marketing leader for Brevant.

“With Brevant, both retailers and farmers have the freedom to choose a new brand without compromising what’s most important to them. We’re committed to collaborating with farmers’ local retail teams to ensure their farm is always ready for what’s next.”

New Brand, Proven Genetics

Brevant seeds may be new in the U.S. market, but its performance is well documented in nearly 3 million head-to-head comparisons. Corn hybrids offered for 2021 planting in the Brevant brand average seven bushels per acre more than the competition and Enlist E3 soybean varieties offered for 2021 planting in the Brevant brand average one bushel per acre more than the competition.

Brevant brand corn and soybean portfolios will feature the latest trait technology solutions and a complete line of BMR silage corn, including its proprietary line of Unified corn silage and TMF hybrids backed by Brevant’s highly trained Silage Technology Managers.
