Agribusiness

YYou get a superior product because National Starch Agribusiness builds close relationships with our growers. We contract with area farmers — some of whom have been with us for three generations — for more than 90% of our corn supply. They track production, varieties planted (such as waxy, high extractable starch dent and high amylose) and crop management data to consistently deliver a superior crop.

The Agribusiness team also oversees the quality and sales of the byproducts of our starch manufacturing operations, including starch for animal feed. Because of our reputation for quality and the availability of non-GM materials, our byproducts are in demand throughout the world.

 Plant science

 

Plant science

To give you the functionality you need, we’re always working on ways to build characteristics that become starch functionality into the corn we use. Corn can be dramatically changed through classic breeding techniques to produce a wide range of traits with functionality. Producing desirable results requires a lengthy process that spans several years and many growing seasons at fields in different parts of world.
