Pinnacle Agriculture Launches Mission Seed Solutions, LLC

Loveland, Colorado (AgPR) Oct. 5, 2016 — Pinnacle™ Agriculture Distribution, Inc. is excited to announce the launch of its new proprietary seed company, Mission Seed Solutions, LLC. The firm will be based in Loveland, Colorado and will focus on unique seed opportunities for U.S. corn and soybean farmers.

Pinnacle Agriculture is the nation’s fastest growing ag retailer and has a major focus and investment in seed. Nearly one third of Pinnacle Agriculture’s business consists of seed sales, making them one of the most diverse full service ag retailers in the country. Pinnacle Agriculture also owns four seed manufacturing facilities where they annually produce rice, wheat and soybeans.

Mission Seed Solutions, LLC, will be led by Andrew Duff, Vice President of Seed Strategy for Pinnacle Agriculture. “This is an exciting day for us,” Duff says. “We pride ourselves on the fact that seed is strategically important to us, and we are constantly looking for ways to drive value in seed. Customers trust us with their seed decisions and we want to ensure our customers have access to the best products regardless of where they are located.”

The launch of Mission Seed Solutions, LLC, complements an existing seed strategy that builds upon Pinnacle Agriculture’s investment in seed and internal mantra “Lead with Seed”. Pinnacle Agriculture’s seed expertise can be traced back through the Sanders’ retail stores for more than 75 years. The company’s dedication to seed is also evident through the acquisition of eight independent regional seed companies across the Midwest just last fall.

About Mission Seed Solutions, LLC
The creation of Mission Seed Solutions, LLC, will enhance Pinnacle Agriculture’s retail expansion efforts and continue to drive a diverse portfolio of farm inputs. It will introduce its first corn and soybean products into the market this fall.
