We’re always here for you, eager to share the management and agronomic practices you need to help your Cornelius Seed products perform at their highest levels.

Passion for maximizing your profits

All our decisions are driven by one objective—to help you increase your profitability per acre. It’s the unique focus that makes us different from our competitors.

Commitment to treating customers well

We begin each day by putting our best foot forward. That means treating customers, each other, and everyone else with the dignity, honesty, and respect they deserve.

With Cornelius Seed, when you plant it, you profit. And that’s because we take a farmer-first approach and treat you like our neighbor. We listen to your needs and deliver consistent results and profits by providing superior products designed for your soil. Staying current with the latest technologies and genetics, production and processing of our corn and soybeans are personally managed by the Cornelius family—because, just like you, we take pride in our work and deliver only our best. It’s how we’ve operated for five generations, and it’s how we always will.
