Myron Stine, Son of Billionaire Seed Entrepreneur Harry Stine, Slated for the 2015 Land Expo

January 14, 2015 - Peoples Company

Myron Stine, the son of billionaire seed entrepreneur Harry Stine, has been confirmed as a speaker for the 2015 Land Investment Expo presented by Peoples Company on January 23, in West Des Moines, Iowa. High-density corn will be the topic of his presentation.

Myron Stine started his career at Adel-based Stine Seed as a farm worker and worked his way up through the organization, which is deemed as one of the largest and most successful seed companies in the world. With a background in crop science, the McPherson College alum has served as district manager, regional manager and sales director before taking on his current vice president of sales and marketing role.

Harry Stine, who grew up as part of a poor, hard-working Central Iowa farming family that put in 12-hour-plus workdays to make ends meet, is founder and president of Stine Seed. Last year, at the age of 73, he was the only Iowan to make the Forbes 400 – a list of the world’s richest people.

The family’s fortune, amassed by “revolutionizing the agriculture industry” via innovations in corn-and-soybean crop genetics and plant breeding, includes approximately 26,000 acres with 20,000 acres of Iowa farmland – some of the most arable and valuable ground in the world. Today, Stine Seed is focused on the growth and efficiency of high-density – or high-population – corn that’s intended to beef up production of animal feed and biofuels.

And produce enough food to satisfy the demands of a worldwide population expected to go north of 9 billion people by 2050.
