Beck’s Hybrids plans Ohio research site


ATLANTA, Ind. — Beck’s Hybrids has purchased land near London, Ohio, for research farm studies.

Located east of Farm Science Review, along Interstate 70 and U.S. 40, the new property is Beck’s first permanent location in Ohio.

According to Sonny Beck, president of Beck’s Hybrids, plans for the new property include conducting Practical Farm Research studies, hosting farmers for field day events, building a seed distribution facility, and providing additional agronomic support for Ohio farmers.

Ohio farmers can expect to tour the PFR studies by the 2013 growing season.

“Not only will we be conducting research in the soil types that are typical for many Ohio farmers, but we will be able to deliver products faster,” said Scott Beck, vice president of Beck’s Hybrids.

Beck’s Hybrids is a family-owned and operated seed company that serves farmers in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky.
