Bayer opens Valdosta fruit and vegetable seed distribution center

Bayer Vegetable Seeds announced the recent opening of a new distribution center in Valdosta, Georgia. The center will provide access to Bayer’s Seminis-branded large seed portfolio.

“Bayer is fortunate to work directly with our growers in the Southeast region,” U.S. and Canada Customer Operations and Distribution Manager Logan Burkhart said in a news release. “By opening a physical location in the area, we can better service and connect with those growers.”

Growers can continue to order seed through their sales representative, so the transition to the new distribution center should be seamless. Now they will also have the added assurance of knowing there is a local supply of seed available for select varieties.

“Growers continue to face rising pressures to produce more safe, quality produce, while also increasing their profitability,” said Burkhart. “They need a seed company they can trust to provide them with quality, strong performing varieties, when they need them. This distribution center showcases our commitment to doing just that. We are here, we are listening, and we are ready to respond to growers’ needs.”

The distribution center is currently offering large seed (sweet corn and beans) varieties. To learn more about the new distribution center or place an order, growers can call Oxnard Customer Service at 1-866-334-1056. The distribution center is open by appointment only Monday – Friday.
