Seed Technology For Your Success!
RIB Certified! Last July, the Refuge-in-a-Bag seed blending equipment at the Wadena MN plant became operational. The initial start-up went very well and the entire system was calibrated in time to process both Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete™ and Genuity® VT2PRO® RIB Complete™ traits last fall.
The entire AgReliant Genetics RIB system operates “on line” via inter-connectivity to our corporate offices. Bagging reports are generated by the computerized system for our records and to comply with EPA refuge regulations.
RIB is an exciting innovation! We are pleased to continue the Wensman tradition of being on the forefront of every new seed innovation. This exemplifies our commitment to the Wensman brand philosophy of “Seed Technology For Your Success.” I commend my entire conditioning team for their efforts in getting this complex system up and running smoothly in near record time. Wensman truly has a “state of the art” facility in Wadena with operators who are respected both within the corporation and in the industry. Wensman is First Class all the way!

The Highest Level of Seed Quality
Bigger and better yields come from Wensman's proven ability to put together the best seed components available:
• Wensman's Elite Germplasm
• The Best Trait Technologies
• Superior Seed Treatments
• The Ultimate in Seed Quality
Making a commitment to seed quality means taking the extra measures needed to achieve optimum germination rates. After all, the more seeds that grow will mean more plants per acre – and that means more yield.
Wensman seed quality starts with their experienced team of seed field managers. By raising fields of healthy plants, where pests, disease and weeds are controlled quickly, Wensman can harvest healthy seed.
At its state-of-the-art conditioning facilities, Wensman incorporates proven protocols at all phases in the seed drying, cleaning, sizing and bagging process.
At the heart of this system is the color sorter. Every kernel of corn passes through this computerized "color match" machine which increases purity and germination by rejecting off-color seed.
Wensman uses every seed quality technology available to bring you a better bag of seed.
