DES MOINES, Iowa ─ DuPont announced today it has acquired Seed Consultants, Inc., Washington C.H., Ohio, and Terral Seed, Lake Providence, La., as part of its Pioneer Hi-Bred PROaccessSM business strategy. Terms were not disclosed.
These two seed companies have been distributing products under the Pioneer-owned trademarks:
First introduced in December 2008, the PROaccessSM business strategy enables Pioneer to make available its seed genetics to more growers through a network of distributors. Pioneer will continue its PROaccessSM distribution agreements with other independent seed companies as previously announced:
In early December 2010, Pioneer closed the acquisitions of Hoegemeyer Hybrids, Hooper, Neb., distributor of HPT® brand corn hybrids and soybean varieties; NuTech Seed, Ames, Iowa, distributor of G2® brand corn hybrids and soybean varieties; and AgVenture, Inc., Kentland, Ind., which distributes VPMaxx® brand corn hybrids and soybean varieties through its 39 independently owned and managed Regional Seed Companies. Pioneer also sells a complete lineup of corn and soybean seed under Curry® brand seed.
