Built by Family

Our family has been immersed in the seed business for more than 70 years. We can’t imagine one without the other. We have always considered farmers who buy seed from us to be part of our family. As the fourth generation of Sylvester’s steps in to lead our team, we remain deeply committed to this core value. You can count on us to deliver.

Backed by Performance

It’s our simple way of explaining what we can offer farmers who buy seed from us, but it’s far from basic. To us, performance spans the crop cycle, especially in these key areas.
