Tell us about the beginning of Frontier Hybrids.

Frontier Hybrids, Inc. is one of AgVenture’s independently owned and operated seed companies, located in Abernathy, TX. Founded in 1984, Frontier Hybrids is a family-owned seed company dedicated to selling AgVenture brand corn, as well as other seed products including sorghum, alfalfa, wheat, and native grasses.

Dan Ryan started the business out of his family garage when he obtained the Frontier trademark. Dan, who grew up on a family farm, holds a degree from Texas A&M in Range Management. Donna, his wife, an OU graduate, helped with cattle ranching growing up. Together they both have had a close bond with friends in the small town of Abernathy and have sponsored a local teacher luncheon, a number of dealer meetings, and a community barbeque.

Frontier Hybrids is focused on key areas that include:

  • Family business – we’re a family business that takes pride in helping farmers provide for their families
  • High-yield specialists – our top quality seed is regionally adapted to provide great yields season after season
  • Outstanding service – we are here to help you be successful

Since their inception, the business has grown rapidly and is now located on eight acres north of Lubbock.

Hear what farmers are saying

“I use AgVenture because of their excellent products, service, and agronomic support. When we need something they respond quickly. I can’t think of any reason why we wouldn’t use AgVenture. AgVenture stressed the importance of new technology on our farm and is helping us maximize our yield maps, soil grid maps, and fertilizer application data. I do business with AgVenture because they are very trustworthy and service oriented.”

“We’ve had the AgVenture Spangler 'Training Plots' for several years. The plots help us in our corn and soybean selections. For 3 generations, we have been using AgVenture Spangler products.”

- Wisconsin Farmer

“I consider everyone at AgVenture a friend and I can tell that they are really looking out for me and my farming operation. AgVenture is an easy company to work with and you cannot beat the service. When I have questions about my crops I call AgVenture and they are here right away helping me find the answer.”

“An AgVenture Yield Specialist showed me what my yields could be with AgVenture seed and I thought they were impossible because they were so good.”
