LG Seeds Company Profile

15:36 EDT 19th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

In the early 1980's Groupe Limagrain, the fourth largest seed company in the world, saw a need to expand. With a large market share in hybrid seed corn sales in Europe, and germplasm that was far superior to any available, it was an easy decision to enter the North American marketplace. In 1988, Groupe Limagrain entered the highly competitive North American seed industry with the purchase of Shissler Seed Co., Elmwood, IL.
Proven product performance and market acceptance emphasized a need for expanding the distribution network. Controlling interest in BioTechnica, a publicly traded seed company, was purchased in the winter of 1993 and combined with the marketing effort of Shissler, creating LG SEEDS. BioTechnica's expanded market penetration, spread across the entire Grainbelt under the brand names Horizon, MASCO, JMS, Noble Bear, L. Herried and Voris
