The Betaseed Story

Find out how Betaseed became the number one sugarbeet seed brand for growers in North America.

Our story

In 1970 a pickup truck offering sugarbeet seed for sale hit the dusty roads in rural Minnesota in hopes of selling seed to sugarbeet growers. The germplasm within the seed was obtained from a combination of sources: the USDA, proprietary genetics from overseas, and refined genetics that offered a new tool to sugarbeet growers across North America. This new tool was the basis for Betaseed: a company completely devoted to independent breeding, development and distribution of ever-improving sugarbeet performance. Since its inception, Betaseed has been offering productivity and revenue to North American sugarbeet growers. Through our “farm first” approach, Betaseed sugarbeet seed is planted on more farms than any other seed brand.
