Mark Grewal, president and chief executive officer of S&W Seed Company, commented, “Following our acquisition of DuPont Pioneer’s alfalfa seed production and research assets, S&W has become a true ‘one-stop shop’ for farmers’ alfalfa seed needs.
“We have the broadest array of product offerings, encompassing all dormancy and diverse topography types, as well as industry leading classically bred and transgenic traits. In addition, by having the largest and most diversified alfalfa seed production capabilities in the world, we are better able to serve the needs of distributors and customers by having strong diversification. We look forward to a productive series of days in Krakow.”
