OUR ROOTS RUN DEEPER
The right products. The right people. Right here.
SEE WHERE WE’VE BEEN. AND WHERE WE’RE GOING.
After 85 years serving the Western Corn Belt and helping farmers succeed season after season, we know what thrives here better than anyone. And we’re only growing stronger.
H. Chris Hoegemeyer and his son, Leonard C. Hoegemeyer, together start Hoegemeyer Hybrids. Soon after, we release our very first exclusive varieties, which came out of the studies Leonard made during graduate school. This spirit of innovation continues at Hoegemeyer to this day.
Our first Field Day is held, which continues to be an important part of the business every year, giving customers a chance to see our latest hybrids first-hand.
Leonard's son, Tom Hoegemeyer, joins the company, building a reputation as one of the most innovative plant breeders in the seed industry.
We add soybeans to our market offerings while embracing biotechnology and staying ahead of the curve as we grow into the future.
We relentlessly continue to hone our regional research, testing and technologies to give farmers the right seed year after year—which ultimately results in Hoegemeyer being named the regional seed brand of the Western Corn Belt for Corteva™ Agriscience in 2018. Our combination of world-class offerings and localized expertise continues to this day. And we’re only growing stronger.
