More Than a Bag of Seed
When you purchase Pioneer® brand seed you receive more than just a bag.
Supporting Rural Communities
Pioneer® brand products believes in supporting organisations which help our rural communities. That is why we are actively involved within our communities sponsoring local events and supporting local communities.
Evenly spaced plants are the foundation for higher yields. Even plant spacing reduces competition between plants and maximises silage yield.
The seed planter meter impacts seeding rate, as well as the number of times two seeds are planted at once (known as double drops).
To help maximise profit from your investment in Pioneer genetics and seed quality, the free Pioneer seedPlanterCheckSM is available to growers and planting contractors. Coordinated by your local Pioneer Representative, the seedPlanterCheckSM includes seed meter performance testing, inspection and precision calibration.
Sharing your farming risk, half price seed for replants*
Every bag of Pioneer® brand hybrid maize or sorghum seed you plant is covered by our 50% Seed Replant Risk Cover. If in the unfortunate situation that your Pioneer crop needs replanting within two months of planting, we will provide you with replant seed at half the price for the affected area.*
*This cover is for planting within the same season, and only applies to Pioneer® brand hybrid maize seed which is planted in accordance with Pioneer® brand products' specifications and recommended crop establishment practices. Affected area will need to be assessed and replant approved by a Pioneer representative. Depending on product availability, hybrid and seed treatment will be as per original order. If a given product is out of stock, the next best alternative will be provided. Cover does not apply to lucerne or greenfeed maize blends, or seed treated by a third party.
