A company that has its national operations center in Sioux Falls is coming out with its own seed production line.
Farmer’s Business Network, Inc. is launching F2F Genetics Network.
The seed line will be run out of the Sioux Falls office and will include conventional (non-GM) and post-patent seeds in corn, soybeans, and other crops.
“FBN members have been fed up with high seed costs and reduced competition from industry consolidation,” said Ron Wulfkuhle, Head of Seed at Farmers Business Network who will lead the F2F Genetics Network. “In the F2F Genetics Network, farmers go from seed consumers and price takers to seed creators and market drivers.”
FBN started just three years ago and already has around 7,000 farm members.
