Bred for West Texas

We put our cotton to the test in the very soil it was bred for through our premier testing and commercialization program. This process ensures the seed we develop can perform in all of West Texas’ unique growing conditions.

Our premier breeding facility in Lubbock, Texas, is the only manufacturing plant of its kind in West Texas and sits on the largest cotton patch in the U.S. This research facility houses multiple programs focused on improving genetic performance and is a central point for the breeding and testing programs in the High Plains region.
