Advanta US is improving and consolidating its sorghum seed production, processing and storage into its Hereford, Texas, facilities. In addition to capital improvements that will be made to the facilities, Advanta will be consolidating positions and equipment from its Crosbyton, Texas, location.

"This move to improve customer responsiveness and reduce costs comes after much consideration and careful analysis," said Steve Ligon, U.S. business manager. "The Hereford facility is more centrally located to our seed production fields and has upgraded processing and packaging equipment as well as a quality control lab in place. We want to transition our services to better serve all of our customers, while cutting costs associated with facility maintenance and seed transportation."
