Earlier this week, I attended a meeting hosted by seed company, AgriGold.

In this era of mergers, its ownership and parent companies are big, yet small. In the United States, AgReliant Genetics with LG Seeds and AgriGold is about seven-percent of the corn market compared to the 30% owned by two of its largest competitors.

At an AgReliant Genetics research facility near Champaign, Illinois,  AgriGold held a Specialty Products Conference on Tuesday. I spoke with Craig Carter, Eastern Sales Manager. We first talked about crops and then moved into competing in merging marketplace.
