THE SPECTRUM COMPANY
Non-GMO Corn | Non-GMO Hybrids
Our mission at Spectrum Premium Genetics™ is to be just, simple and substantial in all we do.
We are a farmer-driven seed corn company based in west-central Indiana. Our focus is on the development and commercialization of premium non-GMO corn hybrids. We also provide choice in a time of seed industry consolidation. We are independent and not subject to any GMO trait license agreement. Our freedom-to-operate enhances genetic diversity and allows us to demonstrate performance and profitability. We realize biotechnology traits can be effective in the reduction of pests, however, current studies question their value and sustainability. We believe traits are tools – not the rule.
