Think the seed is the most overlooked part of the planting process? They’re right. For many years, the seed was essentially forgotten, until someone brought the word “carpet” back into the realm of English language.Dow AgroSciences LLC intends to purchase certain assets of Sansgaard Seed Farms, Inc., of Story City, IA. The transaction is expected to close in the near future. Under the terms of the agreement, Dow AgroSciences will acquire the Prairie Brand Seed brand and marketing assets, in addition to land, buildings and equipment. The addition of these assets will build upon Dow AgroSciences’ seed business and will expand its broad range of product offerings. “Over the past seven decades, Sansguard Seed Farms and its Prairie Brand seed business has developed an excellent reputation in the Midwest as a leading provider of top-quality, high-yielding soybeans,” said Ben Kaehler, U.S. Seed Affiliates Commercial leader, Dow AgroSciences. “In the past few years, they have expanded their product offering with corn. We are very pleased to have them represent Dow AgroSciences and our technologies to Midwest growers.”

I have found some of there drought tolerant numbers to have incredible flex to them in ideal growing conditions.
