Striving to improve efficiencies to benefit its North American sunflower business and customers, Advanta US is consolidating the supervision and management of its sunflower seed production. Advanta's sunflower business unit will be moving from Fargo, N.D. to the company's U.S. headquarters in Hereford, Texas. Advanta will continue to offer North American customers elite, proprietary SG sunflower hybrids for marketing and distribution in their own private-label brands.

"The consolidation of our sunflower operations with Advanta's existing infrastructure in Texas will allow us to improve cost synergies and the overall efficiency of our seed processing and packaging," said Steve Ligon, Advanta US business manager. "This move better positions Advanta to continue providing high-quality sunflower seed and genetics to our customers."
