Focus on growth by meeting the needs of farmers across Canada is the clear direction for the team at Maizex Seeds. Under the theme of “Together We Grow”, the joint venture between Maizex Seeds and La Coop fédérée will see Maizex assuming the management of the corn and soybean businesses for both the Maizex and Elite brands across Canada.
“Together We Grow not only represents the joining of our brands, but more importantly the relationship we see with fellow Canadian farmers,” says Stephen Denys, Director of Business Management with Maizex Seeds. “As a Canadian farmer-owned seed business, our clear focus is on meeting the needs we see for high performance grain corn, silage corn, and soybean genetics on farms across the country. If we can help our customers grow their yield or profitability through product and agronomy support, we will grow as well.”
Denys says combining the strengths of both brands in product development, production, and customer service creates a national seed company with the capabilities to meet customer needs into the future. “There are tremendous opportunities ahead for Canadian agriculture and we are well positioned to provide the products farmers will need to take advantage.”
Maizex is focused in two key areas:
• High performance Maizex grain corn. Maizex uses a detailed selection process and unique production process to identify and grow hybrids that provide high yield potential and strong agronomic performance in the field whether for early maturity areas of the Prairies or long day regions in Ontario.
• FeastPlus and EnergyPlus silage hybrids. The company launched two hybrid families for silage corn: FeastPlus hybrids combine high tonnage potential with increased palatability for more meat or milk per acre, and EnergyPlus hybrids are focused on high energy content and hybrid flexibility to use as silage, high moisture or grain corn.
“We are investing in the future we see through expanded Canadian production and expanded product development and customer support initiatives. Our goal is to make Together We Grow not just an anthem but the reality of what we are accomplishing on Canadian farms going forward.”
