WE KNOW ILLINOIS.

at the Stone Seed

Group we strive

to have enduring

relationships with

our customers in

addition to offering

great seed.

As the 85th year of the Stone Seed Group

begins, many thoughts go through our minds.

Most importantly is that we would not be here

without the faith and trust you, our farmer

customers, have placed in us over the years.

We understand your seed purchasing decision

is the most important choice you make every

year as it sets the table for your future success.

As farmers, we work in a highly competitive

world marketplace where many factors

outside our control impact our ultimate

accomplishments. Your seed purchasing

decision is one aspect you do have total control

over. We are forever grateful that farmers

throughout Illinois and the surrounding areas

have chosen our products in ever increasing

numbers over these many years. 2012 was

our most successful year ever and without

your trust and confidence in our products and

people, this would not have been possible.

Rather than being complacent, we continue

to bring you more new ideas, products, and

initiatives than ever before. In 2013, you will

begin to see even greater benefits from our

“Field Focused” initiative. It is one thing to say

“We know Illinois” but as you will see, we will

prove it to you every day through our advanced

below ground research and our total focus on

what makes an Illinois farm unique.

Every seed entity has good seed. If they didn’t,

they wouldn’t be in business very long. We at

the Stone Seed Group strive to have enduring

relationships with our customers in addition

to offering great seed. Many of you are much

more than a customer – you are a great friend.

Our business is focused on making sure we

understand your farm, your way of doing

business, and your unique needs for success.

We thank you for your continued trust,

The Stone Seed Group

CORN REFuGE OVERVIEW

Insect Resistance Management

In order to maintain the

effectiveness of the traits,

and to continue to have

access to them, an Insect Resistance

Management (IRM) plan is mandated

by the U.S. Environmental Protection

Agency (EPA) when purchasing and

planting any seed with insect-protected

traits.

Compliance means correctly meeting

all refuge requirements, which vary by

product and area.*
