American Farmer will explore Ag Seeds, founded in 1975, whose mission is to identify and sell genetics that are adapted to the changing needs of California Agriculture and that contribute to the sustainable production of safe and nutritious food.
American Farmer will educate audiences on how Ag Seeds has evolved over the last 38 years into California’s premier distributor of field seeds, vegetable seeds, and nursery seedlings.
