Due to the increasing costs of producing Breeder Seed, we have made the decision to increase our
Breeder Seed cost to remain revenue neutral. Our new Breeder Seed pricing can be found on the
at the link, Request for Breeder Seed. In addition, for some crops, we will also require the
successful proponent to purchase a minimum amount of Breeder Seed (over several years, if
necessary). This minimum amount will vary depending on the crop kind and is identified above.

Proposals for the 2023 tendered lines will be received until 5:00 p.m. CST, March 30, 2023

The CDC reserves the right to reject any or all proposals. Proponents of proposals accepted by the
CDC will be invited to discuss substantive licensing terms to be concluded within 90 days of the
award; however, finalization of a license agreement is not assured.

Please sign up for our variety tender email list and we will notify you about new varieties and important dates for submitting a variety tendering proposal.
