CropTalk: Your Friendly Beck's Corn Breeders

May 2019

Beck's breeding program began in 1976 with Kyle Smith and a 500- row nursery. Today, there are about 90 people involved in the program, and breeding and testing Beck's genetics occurs around the globe. There is a Beck’s breeding nursery being pollinated every day of the year thanks to the addition of our greenhouse facilities, our Hawaii nursery, and global cooperations, which extend to Central and South America, Europe, and the Southern Hemisphere. For today’s breeders, it’s always summer somewhere.
