Brazilians with FCStone Explore Reinbeck

Today we hosted 23 farmers, coop personnel, and FCStone employees from all parts of Brazil. The trip was organized by INTL FCStone. We started the morning off by touring the Pioneer corn seed production facility in Reinbeck, IA. We were able to tour all aspects of the plant and follow seed corn from the point when it arrives at the plant by truck to the point when it leaves the facility in bags or pro boxes.

Group at Pioneer in Reinbeck

Following our time at Pioneer we made our way to Professor Dave Grunklee's home. There many questions were asked and discussed regarding agronomic practices and precision agriculture technologies. We enjoyed a great pork loin meal before the group had to head towards Dubuque for the night. We look forward to collaborating with this group again in the future.
