Dow buys Cal/West Seeds assets
Dow AgroSciences has acquired most of the assets of the US seed company, Cal/West Seeds (Woodland, California). The business supplies alfalfa, clover and other seed worldwide. The acquisition includes Cal/West’s Argentine business and US research and production facilities in California, Washington and Wisconsin. The business will complement Dow’s Dairyland Seed alfalfa operation and make its forage seed business one the largest in the industry, the company points out. Dow acquired Dairyland Seed in 2008 ( Agrow No 551, p 7).
