Arenzville, IL – Burrus is pleased to announce the addition of DONMARIO brand soybeans to their multi-brand portfolio of corn and soybean products. The DONMARIO brand will provide growers an opportunity to access a new global source of soybean genetics. Burrus provides the regional experience to make this joint venture an ideal opportunity.
Independent, family-owned DONMARIO brand was established in 1982 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Today, DONMARIO is one of the world’s most distinguished soybean brands and genetics specialists, having developed market-leading soybean genetics in six countries and selling over 16 million units of soybeans globally.
“We are excited to add another brand to our multi-brand strategy,” said Tim Greene, president of Burrus Seed. “It has been an honor to work with the Bartolomé family and team over the last 16 months to make this possibility a reality.”
Ignacio Bartolomé, US Lead for GDM Seeds, parent company of the DONMARIO brand added, “We believe the time is right for a family-owned seed brand, with world-class genetics and a customer-first orientation, to have success in the United States. We have been strategically developing varieties in the US for over 12 years to bring a fresh option to American growers.”
With US headquarters in Gibson City, IL, DONMARIO has more than 100 US research sites and tests over 100,000 new soybean varieties in the US annually. The DONMARIO brand’s focus is providing US soybean growers the highest yielding soybeans on the market, packaged with the latest traits, technology, and extensive agronomic insight.
“We feel privileged to be on the cutting edge, helping launch this prestigious brand in the US and expect rapid acceptance of these products as growers become familiar with the DONMARIO history and performance,” said Greene. For more information, visit www.donmario.com or www.burrusseed.com.
