Alforex is built upon more than 100 years of knowledge and experience from our forerunners and parent, including:
In the 1990s, global seed leader Dow AgroSciences became involved in forage research and development with investments in South America. This research program has provided advances in pest resistance and stress tolerance in non-dominant varieties.
Producer’s Choice was launched in 2001 as a new alfalfa seed brand by Cal/West Seeds. As the Producer’s Choice brand grew, it acquired several other assets, including PGI Alfalfas and Target Seeds.
In 2008, Dow AgroSciences acquired Dairyland Seed, greatly expanding its forage research and development, and genetic development capabilities.
The 2012 acquisition of Cal/West Seeds further increased Dow AgroSciences’ alfalfa and forage business. And in 2013, the company combined its global and U.S. forage business into an all new company, Alforex Seeds, a name derived from our vision of Alfalfa and Forage Excellence.
