The corn and soybean seed we breed today is a credit to the tenacity and hard work of those who forged the path in the corn seed business – Akin Seed, Columbiana Seed, Garst and Thomas Hi-Bred Corn Company, Garwood Seed, Golden Seed, J.C. Robinson Seeds, Sommer Bros. Seed and Thorp Seed. These family companies pioneered many industry-changing technologies, including early participation in the development of hybrid seed corn, the first to use a combine for soybeans, and the first to offer a trait stack with European corn borer (Bt) control and herbicide tolerance. Innovations such as these all began with a desire to help industrious local farmers reap the benefits of broadening their horizons.
Today, every Golden Harvest corn hybrid and soybean variety is still bred with the individual needs of hardworking farmers in mind. Powered by broad genetic diversity and exceptional traits and technologies, Golden Harvest has a diverse portfolio of hybrids and varieties to maximize yield in every field. Bred to get the job done in even the most difficult environments and conditions, Golden Harvest offers corn hybrids with insect control, water optimization and herbicide tolerance with high-performing Agrisure® traits and technologies. Golden Harvest soybeans feature built-in resistance to yield-robbing pests and diseases and the traits you need to protect against many of today’s toughest field threats.
