The PRIDE Seeds Story

    Nap King (right) is shown here with Phil Caron, his early partner.

    The PRIDE Seeds story begins in the earliest days of corn hybrids in Canada, and that spirit of innovation and the drive to succeed remain with us today.


    We understand the challenges faced by Canadian growers every day and our undivided focus on seed allows us to deliver a unique product experience and higher profits for growers across Canada.

    As part of AgReliant Genetics, we have access to one of the largest corn breeding and testing programs globally and our corporate independence gives us the freedom to select the best seed treatments to further enhance our best-in-class genetics.

    Our people are the backbone of PRIDE Seeds and all of our highly trained staff are experts, with a shared goal of continual improvement. We recognize there is no substitute for a friendly voice on the phone, and accessible product or agronomic advice when you need it.

    Most importantly, we recognize that ours is a constantly evolving industry and we are continually monitoring and assessing the products we have in the ground now and those we plan to deliver in the future. 

    As always, we continue to gauge our success by yours, so let’s begin the process by planting success, one seed at a time.

    Most importantly, we recognize that ours is a constantly evolving industry...
