LG Seeds – Maximum Potential in Every Seed

The strongest genetic combinations.

Being part of AgReliant Genetics – one of the largest independent seed-only organizations in the United States – means we have access to the best traits and germ plasm in the industry. Combine that with extensive quality control and state-of-the-art facilities, and the result is high-quality seed, bag after bag.

Leading Genetics

AgReliant’s research program ranks among the top five in the United States, guaranteeing that we’re always on the leading edge of hybrid development. Advanced techniques – like doubled haploid breeding – let us develop new imbred lines in half the time of traditional breeding for quicker release of new traits and truly pure, uniform genetics.

Extensive Testings

Our North American research facilities evaluate 100,000-plus hybrid combinations annually. Tests ranging from warm and cold germination and purity analysis to winter grouts and electrophoresis, help ensure consistent performance in different environments. We take an aggressive approach to bringing the best products to market.

Di-Haploid Breeding

dihapoidAgReliant Genetics launched a significant corn breeding operation in the year 2000. This program ranks among the best in the industry and is recognized world-wide for its proprietary “di-haploid” or double haploid breed process.

Di-haploid breeding greatly reduces the normal breeding/testing cycle allowing higher yielding products to be brought to market faster than any conventional program.
