Beck’s, the largest family-owned, retail seed company in the United States, announced a territory expansion 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 its 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.

“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,” said 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 advisors in the expanded territory. As Beck’s continues to grow, they are committed to adding more employees and dealers to continue providing farmers with localized service.

“At Beck’s, our growth strategy is methodical, ensuring the necessary infrastructure is in place to serve every farmer with the best in seed quality, field performance, and service,” said Sonny Beck, CEO of Beck’s. “With new facility locations and a growing family of employees, we are equipped to serve an increasing number of farmers and are excited to introduce them to the Beck’s culture.”

Beck’s offers a lineup of high yielding corn, soybeans, wheat, and alfalfa all backed by a 100% Free Replant Policy. Farmers also have access to an extensive lineup of cover crops and forages. In addition, Beck’s industry-leading Practical Farm Research (PFR)® program brings farmer-focused research to the farm management process.
