California - Imperial Valley non-GE seed production area

Not an official Grower Opportunity Zone

Return to Grower Opportunity Zones

This is a zone for production of APS alfalfa seed.  The Imperial Valley of California is a large and concentrated alfalfa seed production area. In light of the unique growing circumstances in Imperial County and the current international approval status of RRA, Monsanto has worked with the Imperial County Farm Bureau and established unique stewardship requirements for RRA in Imperial County, which are set forth in the Monsanto Technology Use Guide and Monsanto Technology Stewardship Agreement. All alfalfa seed production in Imperial County currently meets the isolation standards for ASSP, making this a very favorable production area for non-dormant alfalfa seed destined for APS markets.
