Building on the heritage of Purdue University germplasm and Dr. Max Robbins' many years of work advancing popcorn genetics, our research team of Dr. Fernando Cardenas, Dr. Michael Stein, Dr. Lujan Farace, and Dr. Marcos Rodovalho now have nurseries in three widely varied climactic areas augmented by trials on six continents. This gives Ag Alumni Seed maximum genetic diversity, allowing us to develop high performing popcorn hybrids that will meet customer needs for regional adaptation, maturity, disease resistance, yield, kernel size, kernel color, popping expansion and other characteristics now and into the future.
Ag Alumni Seed
Most of our seed is produced by our own highly experienced professional staff at our 2,500-acre facility near Romney, Indiana in the heart of the US Corn Belt. By producing our own seed, we ensure that we are growing and delivering the highest quality products possible. All of our seed lots are inspected, tested and certified to AOSCA (and as required ISTA) standards by an independent, ISO certified and USDA accredited agency. All popcorn seed lots have GMO free certification.
