IPSA Announces Gro Alliance as its New Field Trial Program Strategic Partner

On Friday, Sept. 30, the Independent Professional Seed Association (IPSA) selected Gro Alliance as its strategic partner for the popular Field Trial Program starting with the 2023 season.

Since establishing the program in 2013, IPSA has conducted hundreds of trials that have evaluated seed treatments, seed enhancements and biological seed products on both corn and soybeans. It’s consistently rated as one of the most important member services that IPSA provides. This new partnership will expand the program by tapping into Gro Alliance’s network of facilities and relationships.

“Gro Alliance has been a long-standing member of IPSA and is an important service provider to our members and the industry overall,” said Todd Martin, IPSA CEO. “Between the seed community relationships of IPSA and Gro Alliance, we are confident we can increase the number of providers and on-seed products tested in the Field Trial Program.”

“The Field Trial Program has a long history of providing important and relevant information to the industry. This partnership allows us to build off that foundation. We plan to continue to use the cooperators that have made it so valuable and unlock more potential by increasing the number and diversity of products tested,” said Marc Neuman, director of new business development, Nursery Services for Gro Alliance.

“I would also like to personally thank Tim Case and Jim Rouse for their outstanding contribution over the past two years to the program. Your work is truly appreciated,” added Martin.
