American Farmer explores the independent sector of the hybrid seed corn and soybean business.

JUPITER, Fla., March 8, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In an upcoming episode, American Farmer will explore how a regional seed company thrives in a land of international giants. This segment is scheduled to broadcast 3rd QTR, 2018 on RFD-TV.

Burrus Hybrids was founded in 1935 by two brothers who believed in the value of service and integrity. More than 80 years later, Burrus Seed continues their mission to provide quality seed, consistent performance, and exceptional value to its customers.

"Independent seed businesses like Burrus are in the best position to bridge the gap between the American farmer and future innovation and technologies; by better understanding growers' needs, both today and tomorrow," said Todd Burrus, Director of Agronomy & Business Relations.

This segment will focus on how Burrus has used their family's passion for American agriculture to fuel their success.

"Burrus believes in the independence of the American farmer," said Jennifer Tierney, producer for the series. "We look forward to exploring this topic on our show."
