DLF Pickseed has announced its acquisition of La Crosse Seed. With headquarters in La Crosse, Wis., La Crosse Seed has significant market share presence in the distribution of forage crop and cover crop seed in the Midwest.

The business name continues as La Crosse Seed and all personnel and operations remain the same as prior to the acquisition.

“Our mission remains the same — to be the preferred seed supplier for our customers and have the seed they need, when they need it,” says Dan Foor, CEO of La Crosse Seed. “We’re excited to leverage the research and development pipeline, enhanced product and agronomic support and global supply chain opportunities that this combination offers,” adds Foor.

Founded in Denmark in 1906, DLF is a leader in the research, development, production and distribution of turfgrass and forage crop seed. DLF Pickseed was formed in 2013 when DLF acquired Pickseed Canada and Pickseed USA.
