John Schillinger, Ph.D., Crop Researcher View Full Bio

Dr. Schillinger began his career as an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University in 1965. He moved to the University of Maryland in 1967, where he taught plant-breeding courses and conducted research with soybeans. In 1973, John was hired by Asgrow Seed Company to establish a new soybean-breeding program. Through his leadership, Asgrow was recognized in the early 1980's as one of the leading soybean seed companies. While at Asgrow, Dr. Schillinger developed the soybean variety A3127, which was named "Product of the Decade" by US AgriMarketing.
Since 2003, John has devoted his research efforts to the development of non-GMO soybean varieties that meet soybean farmer's needs for yield, but have significantly higher protein and significantly lower anti-nutritional content. His varieties are producing outstanding and novel results in feeding trials with several aqua species, plus poultry and turkeys.
