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

tation in Stoneville, Miss., in 1911 when the first scientific breeding work in the Mississippi Valley area began. In 1922, he joined together with three other men to form the Stoneville Pedigreed Seed Company. Their mission was three-fold:
  • To multiply in quantity and to keep pure seed of those varieties of field crops shown to be best by our own and experiment station tests and by actual, practical large-scale field results.
  • To do practical scientific breeding work in the production of new and better varieties and in the improvement of those now being grown.
  • To sell good seed in quantity and at fair prices.

Since 1922, Stoneville has changed ownership, expanded and opened new facilities, research stations and labs across the United States. Bayer CropScience purchased Stoneville in 2007 to further the improvement of cotton varieties. Bayer CropScience brought additional resources with its research and development teams, pioneering trait innovations and global leadership positions in seeds and crop protection. Cotton remains a core crop for Bayer CropScience, and with more than 100 million bags of cottonseed sold in 2012 they are the number one cottonseed company in the world.

Preparing for Tomorrow’s Solutions

Over time, Stoneville has improved the cotton plant by making stronger, upright branches, plant types have been bred with open foliage and fiber quality was improved. Varieties that produced higher yields and quality were brought forward. Research and development, combined with the acquisition of new resources, has allowed Stoneville to bring improved solutions to growers. Good quality cottonseed is the best investment for a growers’ farm. And today, like yesterday, the best is yet to come.
