Corn Breeding and Research

West Central Minnesota Station

The West Central Minnesota Station at Morris, Minnesota emphasizes 95-day and earlier maturities. With emphasis on these earlier maturities, AgReliant Genetics is striving to improve products to meet the needs of growers who plant those hybrids.

South East Minnesota Station

The South East Minnesota Station at Kenyon, Minnesota concentrates on 96-day to 100-day maturity corn. In addition to the station nursery, AgReliant Genetics has research plots throughout southern Minnesota, as well as parts of South Dakota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

Di-Haploid Breeding

AgReliant Genetics launched its 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 breeding 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.

AgReliant Genetics has one of the largest corn breeding programs in the industry.
