Wensman Seed Company - Your Corn and Soybean Yield Leader, 30 May 2015 [cached]
That's why Wensman focuses on being the LEADER you can trust when making your planting decisions. There simply isn't room for compromise when choosing a seed supplier. Wensman strives to be a LEADER every day in every way - all year long. Our company culture is centered around a simple formula: YIELD SUCCESS = HIGH RETURN ON INVESTMENT. When you partner with Wensman, you will see LEADERSHIP in action. Our people and our products are proof positive of that claim. Thanks for considering Wensman for Spring 2015!
I am very excited to announce that we will be introducing seven new corn hybrids for the 2015 growing season. The new corn products include five new Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete® hybrids and two new Genuity® VT Double Pro® RIB Complete® hybrids. Our SmartStax® RIB Complete® hybrids, with dual modes of action to protect against corn rootworm, will maximize yield potential on tough corn-on-corn acres and in areas with a high level of rootworm infestation. For acres where corn rootworm isn't a concern, VT Double Pro® RIB Complete® hybrids, with dual modes of action to combat corn borer and corn earworm, are our top yield choice. Overall, I would say this class will be the strongest performing hybrids that Wensman has ever introduced!
We will be introducing nine new soybean varieties for the 2015 growing season. We continually strengthen our soybean lineup by introducing new varieties that feature high yields, strong Iron Chlorosis tolerance, and improved soybean Cyst Nematode protection. In fact, this year 65% of our varieties will have soybean Cyst Nematode protection. Add Wensman's elite seed quality into these high performing varieties and you will be a soybean YIELD LEADER!

At Wensman, we strongly believe that a LEADER delivers "Success" and a "High Return on Investment."
Our Leading Sales Team
Wensman was planted on more and more acres - by more and more growers - again last year. We are grateful for the increase in both units sold and number of customers.
Wensman achieved the distinction of being the leading regional corn and soybeancompany in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota several years ago. We've made expanding that "Leader" role our goal each year.
Wensman understands that there are lots of seed companies vying for your business.
Wensman is expanding its Sales Team this year.

Wensman started on Day One with the fundamental philosophy of being an industry leader. Those principals have guided us to a position as the #1 independent seed company in Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota.
Our farmers rely on Wensman for our great genetics, the latest traits, more yield - and a whole lot more. Wensman's independent status allows us more flexibility to select the best traits along with identifying the best products from our two local research stations in Morris and Kenyon, MN.
Wensman's highly trained sales team has the agronomic expertise to help make your cropping decisions easier.
Look to a LEADER - Look to Wensman!

"Wensman is a trusted name in the seed industry."
Pending the outcome of negotiations, the agreement would become effective beginning July 1, 1997.The transition from a Ciba Seeds marketer to a Wensman Brand is expected to occur over a two-year period.
"Our opportunity with Novartis Seeds is very exciting," said Jeff Wensman, president of Wensman Seed, in Wadena, Minn. "Farmers buy products for the genetics and Wensman Seed will be in a position to supply those genetics in the future as we have in past years."
Wensman Seed is a Minnesota- and Dakotas-based business that became an associate of Funk Bros. Seed Company in 1943.That agreement continued after the purchase of Funks by Ciba-Geigy Corporation in 1974 and through the merger of Ciba Seeds and Northrup King Co.
On Jan. 1, 1997, Ciba Seeds and Northrup King Co. merged to form Novartis Seeds, Inc.The company is an affiliate of Novartis Seeds AG located in Switzerland.Novartis Seeds AG is a leading worldwide research organization that produces and sells, corn, soybean alfalfa, sunflower, sorghum, sugar beet, vegetable and flower seeds.

Wensman started selling the Funk's G brand in 1942; and in 1989, transitioned to the Ciba Seeds brand after Ciba-Geigy acquired the Funk's G label.
In 1998, Wensman introduced the first Bt technology to enter the market. Developed by Ciba-Geigy, this new Bt technology was called Event 176. Bt corn gained immediate farmer acceptance as they could visually see the positive results in the field by adding 5-10 bushels per acre in yield. In fact, 80% of Wensman's sales volume that year had this exciting new Bt technology.
That very first year, the Wensman brand definitely accomplished it's major goal of becoming a trait leader in the seed industry.
In 2000, AgReliant Genetics, LLC acquired Wensman with the intent of fast tracking the brand's strategy of trait leadership. Staying true to AgReliant's vision, Wensman immediately introduced the Monsanto corn traits Mon 810 (Bt) and Roundup Ready®, meeting high customer demand for these technologies.
In the early 2000's, Wensman also introduced Roundup Ready® soybeans. A few years later, Wensman brought forth the first "triple stack" - rootworm corn protection stacked with Bt and Roundup Ready®. All of these past trait introductions have led up to the marketing and selling of our 2011-2012 lineup of corn traits including Genuity® Smartstax®, Genuity® VT Triple PRO™, YieldGard VT Triple®, Genuity® VT Double PRO™ and Roundup Ready®; along with the Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean trait.
Since 1997, Wensman has earned the reputation in the seed industry as a cutting-edge company that leads the way to improved yields with new seed trait technologies.

Seed Technology For YOUR SUCCESS!
I would like to thank all of our customers for planting Wensman in 2010. This past year was both very challenging and exciting as we earned our way on to more corn and soybean acres. I truly believe that 2011 will see continued growth in all phases of our business.
In 2011, Wensman is continuing our company tradition of offering our customers more and better product choices.
This will be the very first time that Agrisure® traits will be available from Wensman.
The gains made in our 2010 soybean business were phenomenal. Wensman is truly a market leader in our sales area of North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. I am looking forward to continued growth next spring with our expanded Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean line-up that includes 14 new RR2Y varieties.
Trust Wensman's history. Growers have become increasingly aware that Wensman is consistently a leader when it comes to introducing new genetics, new traits and new seed treatments into our marketplace. We have earned a reputation as a cutting-edge company that leads the way to better yields with new seed technologies.
Wensman is a company that you can count on.
