HOW DID WE COME ABOUT?
CR Seeds & Services LLC was founded in 2014 by Cory Robinson. Cory grew up on a small dairy farm and attended the University of Missouri-Columbia. There he graduated Cum Laude with a BS degree majoring in Agribusiness Management and minored in Ag Systems Management. While in college he held internships in seed production with JC Robinson Seeds/Golden Harvest/Syngenta and as an operations trainee with Bartlett Grain. Upon graduation; Cory became District Sales Manager with Golden Harvest covering SW Missouri/SE Kansas/NE Oklahoma. He later moved on to become an Account Manager with Pioneer Hi-Bred Int. in West Central Missouri.
Cory managed 10 Pioneer Sales Rep Agencies for over 6 years. While he enjoyed helping their businesses grow; the desire to have his own business also grew. The opportunity presented itself when his father-in-law and a neighboring Pioneer Agency back in home area wanted to retire from seed sales.
Cory has always had an agronomic passion stemming from his seed production internships. And this provided the backbone to complement the seed business with the Maximum Farming System. As an Area Manager with Ag Spectrum; he works directly with farm operations and a dealer network to build sustainable soil health while maximizing yields.
More services have entered the picture over time. Providing customer livestock minerals/supplements locally, grain bagging materials, and crop insurance are just a few. Cory credits his wife, three boys, in-laws, employees, managers, and numerous colleagues for providing so much support to help serve his customers successfully.

We’re committed to building strong relationships that allow us to contribute to customers’ success in multiple ways.
