Peterson Farms Seed has hired Dennis Schultze as research director of its agronomy department. Schultze, a Woodbury, Minn., native, has more than over 35 years of experience in the seed industry, with more than 20 of those years focused on soybean beans. Schultze earned his degree from University of Wisconsin-River Falls, and he was previously a soybean breeder for Dow AgroSciences and Mertec LLC.
Schultze has developed many of the varieties that have made up the Peterson Farms Seed line-up over the years.
"I have always been impressed on how Peterson Farms Seed develops relationships with their customers and I wanted to get back to a family run business," Schultze says.
Schultze will lead research efforts at Peterson Farms Seed for both corn and soybeans. Peterson Farms Seed has more than 16,500 corn and 11,200 soybean plots. Schultze will also assist with genetic selections of products for the Peterson Farms Seed lineup.
