Business Description

Industry: Consumer Packaged Goods » Farm Products
Compare: » details
S&W Seed Co was founded as a California general partnership in July 1980. The Company is a producer of high- yield alfalfa seed varieties, including varieties that can thrive in poor, saline soils. It also offers seed cleaning and processing for other seed manufacturers. The Company owns a 40-acre seed cleaning and processing facility located in Five Points, California that it has operated since its inception. The Company's products are primarily grown under contract by farmers in the San Joaquin and Imperial Valleys of California, South Australia as well as by the Company itself under a small direct farming operation. The Company began its stevia initiative in fiscal 2010 and moved from a pilot program to commercial production in fiscal 2011. The Company faces direct competition by other seed companies, including small family-owned businesses, as well as subsidiaries or other affiliates of chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Its agricultural operations are subject to a range of evolving environmental laws and regulations. These laws and regulations include the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act.
