Starting immediately, Barenbrug USA is now the proud owner of Oregon Seed Enhancement (OSE) LLC. OSE is a high-output seed coating facility located down the road from Barenbrug USA’s headquarters in Tangent, OR. This purchase will continue the substantial investments by the company to enhance its supply chain with the overall goal to meet market realization of the value-creation of seed enhancement technology in both forage and turf.
Barenbrug USA has been an innovative and market leader in seed coating since the launch of Yellow Jacket® Enhanced Seed Technology in 2006. Independent research has proven conclusively that seed coated with Yellow Jacket® technology establishes faster, requires less water and promotes stronger and more extensive early root development.
James Schneider, CEO, said, “We are excited about the ability to become more vertically integrated which will allow us to more proactively invest in future innovations in seed coating technology. This investment will create future value for our distributors as well as the end-users.”
