AgriGold adding soybeans

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest At the Farm Machinery Show in Louisville today, AgriGold announced that the formerly corn only company will be soon adding soybeans to their line up.“We have been corn only for the past 80 years, but with new genetics, traits and seed treatments, it has made the soybean industry very confusing. Our model is largely based on a one-on-one relationship with the grower. We feel that this is the perfect opportunity to provide value with our growers not only in their difficult decisions in corn but now also soybeans,” said Nathan Louiso, regional sales manager for AgriGold. “We have been asked to provide a bean line for years, and we feel like it is time to support our growers with their soybeans like we have with corn. We are starting with a very limited release for spring of 2017 that will target some of our current growers. We are going to take this slow to do this the right way — the AgriGold way. We are starting with a blank slate and planning to get a lot of feedback from our growers as we move forward with this.”last_img read more
