- The Early Years
John Sorenson got into the seed business in the early 80’s, he began as a PAG Seed dealer, which was eventually bought by Cargill, becoming Cargill Hybrid Seeds. At this time he also was a Stine Soybean dealer.
- The 1990′s
In the mid 90’s John took on a Dekalb dealership, Dekalb had the genetics PLUS BT traits that Cargill Hybrid Seeds did not offer. Within a couple of years he dropped his Cargill and Stine dealerships to focus his efforts on Dekalb.
- Growing Family Involvement
Monsanto purchases Dekalb in the late 90’s, about this time Gary gets more involved in the seed business and also takes on a part-time job with Monsanto supporting other dealers with invoicing/inventory tracking software.
- Community Focus
From 2001 through 2010 Gary also serves as a Cottonwood County Commissioner. Late in his last term we decide to rent out our land out and focus wholly on the seed business.
- Expanding and Growing
John retires and Gary takes over the seed business in 2010. Gary builds a new facility in 2011, adds a seed treatment and bulk soybeans. A lot of exciting new changes are currently taking place!
