Viking Brand Transitioning to 100% Non-GMO & Organic!
Albert Lea Seed House is happy to announce that from here on out, the Viking Brand will be 100% focused on Non-GMO and Organic Corn, Soybeans, and Alfalfa seed. Viking Seed will not carry any seed with GMO or GE traits
We're making this change to focus on what we know best--and that's seed and solutions for Organic farmers. Albert Lea Seed was one of the first companies in the country to offer certified Organic field seed. We produced our first certified Organic oat seed in 1996 and the Organic Viking corn and soybean line is the longest standing brand on the market. We're proud of our history of innovation, and we're excited to focus on developing high-performing products for our organic farmers.
What's not changing is our team. They know their stuff, and they've been in the business a long time. Many on our team have been in the seed industry for decades and now all of our collective knowledge and resources will be focused exclusively on providing seed-based solutions for Organic and non-GMO farmers.
As we move forward with this transition over the next weeks and months our mission to you, our farmer customers, has never been more clear. We will continue to provide the widest selection of high-performing Organic farm seed in the marketplace paired with knowledgeable and thoughtful service at a fair and equitable price.
Organic Farmers Can Look Forward to Many Exciting New Developments in Organic Seed Offerings for 2017 and Beyond. Things Like:
- Organic Corn hybrids with guarantee levels of seed purity
- Organic aphid-tolerant soybean varieties
- Organic leafhopper-resistant alfalfa varieties
- Organic silage-specific corn hybrids
- Organic highly digestible sorghums (BMR)
- Organic market-specific grains like baking/milling wheat varieties
- Organic cover crop mixes and new organic cover crop species
We also remain firmly committed to being a leader in the Organic community by donating our time, money, seed and resources to Universities and Organic-focused non-profits. We also invest heavily in replicated seed testing and variety testing under Organic conditions. Our goal at Albert Lea Seed is to ensure the continued success of the Organic farmer as well as to contribute to the success of the greater Organic community.
If you have any questions about this exciting transition or any of our 2017 seed offerings, please call us (800-325-5247)! We very much look forward to talking with many of you one-on-one either in person or on the phone. We sincerely appreciate your business and look forward to working with you for many years to come.
