Schultze joined Peterson Farms Seed in October 2018 as research director. In addition to his responsibilities running one of the largest independent crop research programs in the Upper Midwest, Schultze will now be responsible for product selection and managing in-season product grow-outs.
“Dennis brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our company in terms of soybean breeding and research-based product selection. We’re excited to tap into his extensive experience, and for him to lead our product selection efforts,” says Scott Sanders, general manager.
Schultze, a Woodbury, Minn., native, has had 35 years of experience in agriculture; more than 20 of those years focused on soybean breeding. Schultze has developed many of the varieties that have made up the Peterson Farms Seed lineup over the years.
“Peterson Farms Seed has a long legacy of choosing high-performing products to meet their customers’ needs. I’m looking forward to the challenge of building on that history of excellence,” Schultze says.
