Beck’s Expands Coverage Area to Nine States

Beck’s, the largest family-owned retail seed company in the United States, expands into new regions of Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Ohio. This expansion adds roughly 12 million acres of corn and soybeans to Beck’s former marketing area to bring their total reach to half of the corn and soybean acres in the U.S. The continued growth will provide more Midwest farmers access to the world’s most diverse genetics and traits in corn and soybeans, according to the company.
“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,” says Scott Beck, president of Beck’s. “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 territory now encompasses the full state of Iowa, two-thirds of Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee, additional counties in southern Michigan, all of Ohio and Illinois, southern Wisconsin, as well as Indiana. Currently, there are a number of dedicated Beck’s dealers and seed advisers in the expanded territory.
