What Can Viking Pure & Ultra-Pure Do For You?
Many conventional and organic farmers have grain loads rejected by non-GMO grain buyers for excess levels of GMO. Farmers often don’t know who to blame: Was it the seed they planted? Did pollen blow in from neighboring fields? Was the combine, grain cart, or the bin not cleaned out?
With Viking Pure and Ultra-Pure seed, you know you’re planting pure seed.
When Viking seed is labeled with the Pure or Ultra-Pure label, we guarantee the purity of the seed in the bag. You can plant with confidence, knowing that you are starting with the level of seed purity you need to meet the requirements of your contract.
VIKING ULTRA-PURE SEED — 99.9% NON-GMO
Viking Ultra-Pure Seed is guaranteed to be 99.9% GMO-free. How do we achieve that 99.9% level of non-GMO purity?
- Stringent testing of seedstock
- Extreme isolation of seed production
- Dedicated non-GMO equipment throughout all phases of production and processing
- Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of all seed lots and seed sizes
That means you can be sure you’re planting the purest seed available.
If your production contract demands grain that meets the highest purity standards, and you have the know-how and production techniques to prevent other sources of contamination, Viking Ultra-Pure is the best choice for your fields.
We award the Ultra-Pure label only on best-in-class hybrids that have been tested and trialed throughout the Midwest.
VIKING PURE SEED — 99% NON-GMO
Viking Pure Seed is guaranteed to be 99% GMO-free. Some animal-feed non-GMO grain contracts allow 1.5 – 4.5% GMO (always check with your buyer). If you’re growing for such a buyer, Viking Pure Seed allows you to plant seed that is guaranteed to be 99% free of GMOs putting you well below the threshold of these contracts.
Start Pure, Stay Pure
Viking Pure and Ultra-Pure seed does not protect your grain from cross-pollination by neighboring crops, co-mingling, or faulty testing. But with in-field best practices and equipment hygiene, you can start pure and stay pure, all season long.
