Company Overview

A different approach to help you produce more bushels

Since 1983, our goal continues to be to deliver a more personalized, highly localized approach to seed selection, agronomic expertise and year-round support.

​We are the nation’s largest network of independently owned and managed seed companies based in Johnston, Iowa. We’re dedicated to providing our growing network of companies with seed products that surpass industry-required standards, as well as leading-edge genetics and technology. Since our inception in 1983, this unique marketing approach has allowed each individual company to match the seed products it sells to the specific needs of the geographical area it serves. We strive to help every farmer realize more profit from every field with professional seed representation at a local level.

Our seed product portfolio includes corn, soybeansunflower, and sorghum. As a brand owned by Corteva Agriscience™, the largest exclusive agriculture company in the world, this allows access to the industry’s most diverse inbred combinations and elite germplasm pools to deliver maximum yields on every acre.

We’re not just another seed brand

The AgVenture network is made up of Independent Seed Companies (ISCs) which are independent, entrepreneurial businesses, committed to providing farmers in their areas with the best products, technologies, seed treatments and crop management tools available. Our ISCs are totally independent, free to conduct their business operations as they choose.

Independent Seed Company owners and their AgVenture Yield Specialists (sales agronomists) share a deep knowledge of the seed business and a desire to make a difference in their local economies by boosting the profitability of local farmers. They use our different approach to help you produce more bushels by providing year-round agronomic leadership and support, as part of our proprietary Maximum Profit System™.


ISCs also have access to hundreds of products, allowing them to choose the most effective hybrids and varieties for their local geography.
