Stoneville Cotton Seed from Bayer CropScience Celebrates 90 Years of Performance
Date:3/1/2013

of variety improvements through plant breeding, BXN put us on the map as a cotton technology leader - and it was a great pioneering product,” Hughes said. “The team at Stoneville-Calgene (Stoneville was then owned by Ag Biotech firm Calgene Inc.) was doing some serious cutting-edge research. No one had seen this before; we were all there for a common mission and it was fun. Everyone was engaged across the cotton industry including a very close relationship with the Cotton Extension Specialists. There were stops and starts and ups and downs until we managed to put the technology in our best varieties, but it was a phenomenal success and a very visible introduction into cotton with herbicide technology.

“Stoneville has always been committed to cotton and commitment makes the difference,” Hughes added. “Growers have confidence that Stoneville is doing things in the best interest of the cotton grower, and to this day it still means that.”

Lee Rivenbark, V.P. global cotton and U.S. seed operations for Bayer CropScience, couldn’t agree more. “I’ve said it before; we do not take one acre for granted. We take pride in demonstrating that our company is about more than just the products that we sell. In fact, we believe we are setting the standard not only through our innovations, but in areas of sustainable agriculture, environmental stewardship and making a positive difference in the communities where we live and work.”

From a handful of employees to a global network, Stoneville still has its local roots and focus on the cotton grower. “Bayer CropScience sees a bright future on the horizon for agriculture,” Rivenbark said. “It’s what we’re all about – bringing together the strengths and research of a leading global organization to provide cotton growers with the local products they need now and into the future.”
