Steyer Seeds purchased the majority of the operating assets of Horizon Genetics, Inc., an independent seed company based in Mason City, Ill. A definitive agreement was reached on Dec. 22, 2010.

"Purchasing the assets of Horizon is truly a win-win," said Bernie Steyer, president, Steyer Seeds. "It enables Steyer to offer the latest resources, technology, hybrids and choice the grower needs and has come to expect from an independent seed company in Central Illinois. This will also allow us to expand upon and more efficiently serve our current Illinois and Iowa customer base."
