History and Ownership
As the third largest corn seed company in the United States, AgReliant Genetics has established itself as a leader in seed research, production and quality, becoming one of the fastest growing independent seed companies in the agriculture industry. Headquartered in Westfield, Indiana, AgReliant Genetics has tailored its products and services to reflect the needs of growers across a multitude of geographies. AgReliant Genetics’ production locations span the Corn Belt. Our research program operates 13 research facilities across North America and is ranked among the top five agriculture research programs in North America.
The history of AgReliant Genetics is rooted in the tradition of our two parent seed companies, Groupe Limagrain of Saint-Beauzire, France and KWS of Einbeck, Germany, which are the fourth and fifth largest seed companies in the world and, together, boast over 200 years of combined seed experience. Established on July 1, 2000 as a joint venture, AgReliant Genetics has consistently provided value to its customers through forward-thinking seed innovation and technology, and superior service, both in and out of the fields. The company has seen continuous growth since its inception, having increased its corn volume by more than 300 percent.
AgReliant Genetics’ unique multi-brand strategy allows farmers across the Corn Belt and in Canada the opportunity to experience high-yielding product performance, regardless of geographical location or operation size. Each brand offers top-quality products to meet individual needs and provides a unique, reliable customer experience.
