Charles Seed, Brownseed Genetics
I’m here to talk about high old corn, something I’ve been working on for 21 years. I actually go back further than when I worked with Holden’s Dupont to develop some of their pollinators for the top cross. I’ve been in this for quite a while. I’m a third-generation seedsman. My grandfather Monroe started in 1911, my dad Tom came in in 1949, and I came in in 1966 at 12 carrying water to detachment crews. It’s the only full-time job I’ve ever had, and I don’t have a single picture of all three of us. I’m a little remiss, I suppose with airbrush you can do that these days. Anyways, we had built up our seed company over eight states for retail corn, soybeans, alfalfa, and field seeds. I saw that there was going to be a real change, a disruptive change in the industry.
