Beck's expanding throughout 6 states

Beck’s, the largest family-owned, retail seed company in the United States, recently announced a territory expansion in Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Ohio.

The company will add approximately 12 million acres of corn and soybeans to Beck’s former marketing areas.

“Over the last few years, more and more farmers have seen the value in working with a seed company that is family-owned, farmer-focused, and committed to providing high yielding products,” Scott Beck, president of Beck’s, said. “With a world-class breeding program, a lineup of high-performing products, innovative technologies, and a culture rooted in family heritage, we are dedicated to helping farmers succeed.”

With the expansion,  Beck's will control half of the corn and soybean acreage in the U.S. Its territory now will encompass all of Iowa, as well as two-thirds of Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee. The deal also includes additional counties in southern Michigan and Indiana.

A number of Beck’s dealers and seed advisers are already in the expanded territory, but the company plans to  add more employees and dealers to continue providing localized services to farmers.

“At Beck’s, our growth strategy is methodical, ensuring the necessary infrastructure is in place to serve every farmer with the best in seed quality, field performance and service,” Sonny Beck, CEO of Beck’s, said. “With new facility locations and a growing family of employees, we are equipped to serve an increasing number of farmers and are excited to introduce them to the Beck’s culture.”
