Seed World U.S. Top Innovative Products of 2023

The seed industry is at an all-time high for innovation. Incredible new technologies and products are being launched across the seed industry value chain. That’s great news, both for the seed industry and society as a whole since the seed industry is front and center on tackling major global challenges from food security to sustainable land use to climate change. 

In November, we put out our third annual call for the most innovative new products of the year. Once again, we were impressed and inspired by the breadth and depth of response. Choosing which products move the innovation needle furthest proved a real challenge. 

To be considered for our list, products had to directly relate to and directly impact the seed industry, be unique, and have been launched during the 2023 calendar year. From there, our Seed World U.S. editorial team and editorial board judged applications based on the product’s market potential; its return investment and benefit to the grower / seed value chain; the impacts the product makes to society as a whole; whether the product solves a problem or meets a need in a new, creative, innovative way; and the scalability of the product.
