Distribution of DONMARIO brand soybeans has now officially begun in the United States for the first time. Burrus Seed is pleased to introduce growers to DONMARIO Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans.

Independent, family-owned DONMARIO brand was established in 1982 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Today, DONMARIO is one of the world’s most distinguished soybean brands and genetic specialists, having developed market-leading soybean genetics in six countries and selling over 16 million units of soybeans globally.

With U.S. headquarters in Gibson City, Illinois, DONMARIO has more than 100 U.S. research sites and tests over 100,000 new soybean varieties in the US annually. The DONMARIO brand’s focus is to provide U.S. soybean growers high yielding soybean genetics, packaged with the latest traits, technology, and extensive agronomic insight. The initial introduction to the North American market is planned for Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Iowa through the Burrus sales network.

Ignacio Bartolomé, U.S. Lead for GDM Seeds, parent company of the DONMARIO brand says, “We are excited to enter the marketplace here in the U.S. We have invested 12 years in research and development in the U.S. preparing for this day.”

“This additional brand opens the door to exceptional performance now and in the future,” says Tim Greene, president of Burrus Seed. “It immediately deepens our portfolio of products for this important technology and provides choice for the American grower.”
