In the fall of 1991, Rocky Phillips of Genetic Seed & Chemical grew weary of using his agricultural knowledge, sales ability, and hard working efforts to help one of the big national distributors grow their business. He decided that it was time to leave his job as sales representative and open his own business. Genetic Seed & Chemical was opened in January of 1992, with Rocky running the sales and making deliveries, while handling the phone calls and paperwork out of a makeshift office in his home.
After the first year it became obvious that Rocky couldn't handle all of the work anymore. In the spring of 1993, Tom Skidmore left his job as a custom appicator director for Terra and became a partner in the business. Tom now oversees the chemical and fertilizer custom application side of the business, while helping in the office with customer calls. More often than not you won't find him behind his desk, but out driving one of the four custom rigs. Genetic Seed has grown from a two-man operation to a thriving business with 8 full time employees and seasonal part time help.
Genetic Seed maintains a large inventory and supply chemicals, fertilizer, seed, twine, wire, as well as baler belts and accessories to growers and dealers across the United States. Genetic Seed is a successful businss thanks to hard work, product knowledge, and guaranteed customer satisfaction. Give us a call and we will be happy to help you with any of your agriculture needs. We at Genetic Seed look forward to hearing from you and possibly doing business with you in the future.
