Dow AgroSciences LLC and Mycogen Seeds have signed a lease agreement and purchase option for a new breeding station facility near Huron, SD. This station will serve as a temporary facility while plans are secured for a permanent site.
The South Dakota field station will expand grain and silage corn testing and breeding, improve and expand sunflower testing, and enable better mini-strip testing for both corn and sunflowers. The facility includes space for offices, seed labs, and cold storage, as well as an equipment storage building with an equipment shop area.
Plans are underway to hire a corn breeder at the Huron site along with other full-time and seasonal employees.
