Aurora Cooperative, 12/06/2012
The Aurora Cooperative and Curry Seed announced that they have formed a strategic alliance enabling the Aurora Cooperative to be an exclusive dealer of Curry brand seed in Nebraska and Kansas.
“We are excited to offer a diverse lineup of Curry brand hybrids to our growers,” said Al Perry, Aurora Cooperative seed product manager. “Curry brand traits and options, along with the combination of expert agronomy services, modern technology and in-the-field, one-on-one service and consultations the Aurora Agronomy team can provide, will allow unmatched results for our growers.”
The Aurora Cooperative, a $1.1 billion company in sales, is a grain marketer and agricultural supplier with the majority of its 80 locations throughout communities in Nebraska and Kansas.
“Curry brand corn delivers dependability and consistency. Genetic diversity is a key feature for yield potential and performance against many diseases like Goss’s Wilt,” said Mark Kallsen, General Manager of Curry Seed.
The Curry lineup offers diverse germplasm across a three state area of Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska. With access to major corn and soybean traits, the Curry brand offers a broad portfolio of genetics that will enable Aurora Cooperative customers to plant a more diverse lineup.
