We've come a long way since 1922, but our commitment to people, product, and progress has never wavered. Stoneville cotton is celebrating 100 years of dependable results, 100 years of leading the industry, and 100 years of helping growers own the early. Here's to 100 more.
Our founders worked hard to make a positive difference in the lives of growers, industry partners, and the cotton community as a whole. A century later, our employees continue that legacy for thousands of families across the country.
For 100 years, Stoneville has set the standard for the industry with high-quality, high-performing cottonseed varieties. We have a legacy of helping farmers start strong and win their growing seasons by providing the best seed for each local area.
From being the world's first company to commercialize genetically engineered cottonseed to moving to a 230k seed-count bag, Stoneville cotton has a 100-year legacy of innovation. And we're still committed to progress with our next innovation on the horizon. *For the 2023 season, BASF will introduce Stoneville cotton seed powered by the new Axant™ Flex technology, the industry's first quadruple-stacked herbicide-tolerant cottonseed to work with its first-generation HPPD herbicide technology in cotton, Alite™ 27 herbicide.1
