Work with Us
Neco Seed was established in 1978. We understand how important it is to provide a high quality product with good service in forming a long-term relationship.
NeCo Seeds assists in the production, variety selection, identity preservation, storage, conditioning, and packaging of agricultural products through a network of growers raising specific agricultural products on their farms. NeCo provides this service at various production sights throughout the United States.
Each sight has its own unique characteristics which enables NeCo to place the customer’s product at the most advantageous sight. These sights have various storage capacities/ types, freight options, soil types, weather conditions, maturity zones, conditioning facilities, etc., which give NeCo flexibility in satisfying our customer’s needs.
NeCo Seeds is a company that provides added value and ser- vice to our customers through variety testing and selection, contract production, state of the art processing, and by providing a top quality product.
NeCo Seeds offers a consistent product through the steps outlined in our EQUIPP (Enhanced Quality through Identity Preservered Products) program. We work with all levels of identity preservation from variety specific identity preserva- tion to category specific identity preservation. Once we know what our customer wants and needs, we are able to select and provide the needed product through our network of growers and locations utilizing the most efficient means possible.
Research is key to our future. NeCo has one of the largest specialty soybean breeding programs in the United States in the Group III and IV maturities. NeCo also has genetic access to other agriculture crops.
The newly formed GAPPA (Global Agriculture Product Procurement Agency) Division of Neco Seeds allows us to coordinate our production sights with a synergistic effect to better provide our customers with the products they want, efficiently and effectively.
