Viking Seed

Viking Seed

Viking and Yankton Seed House are making some changes that will benefit our customers by making us a more focused company.

What's happening?

  • Viking Corn & Soybeans (which is owned by Albert Lea Seed) is becoming a 100% non-traited brand that will develop and market non-GMO and Organic corn, soybeans and alfalfa seed

Focusing on What We Know Best

The reason for the change is simple: It's time for us to focus on what we know best, which is developing, testing and supplying non-traited seed. For a decade, the fastest-growing part of Viking and Yankton Seed House has been conventional non-GMO and Organic seed. We support all streams of agriculture, but we don't have the resources to develop traited seed and compete with Syngenta, Monsanto and Dow/DuPont. But we do have the resources and the passion to develop and deliver the best conventional non-GMO hybrids, varieties and innovation to those farmers that need them.

In practical terms, this means that Viking no longer develop and sell traited seeds (such as Roundup Ready soybeans or Genuity SmartStax corn).



Want to maximize potential profit?

Below is a bean field that was planted June 10th after harvesting cereal rye. They harvested head high rye that cut 8 to 10 ton per acre. The beans are a 2.3 maturity and look great. No chemical was used on the rye and no pre-emerge chemical was used on the beans. They used a post of Flexstar and 24 oz of Roundup.
