Golden Harvest Seeds was created in 1973 through a business alliance of six local, family-owned seed companies. These family companies pioneered many industry-changing technologies, including early participation in the development of hybrid seed corn, the first to use a combine for soybeans, and the first to offer a trait stack with European corn borer (Bt) control and herbicide tolerance. Innovations such as these all began with a desire to help local farmers reap the benefits of broadening their horizons.
