Register for the Seed Business 101 for Field Crops Course2 years ago -
The next session of Seed Business 101 Field Crops will be June 15 – 19 in St. Louis, Missouri. The early-bird registration deadline is April 18.
Offered by the University of California, Davis, Seed Biotechnology Center, Seed Business 101 is a one-week course designed to expose participants to the five functional areas of a seed company (research and development, production, operations, sales and marketing and administration).
By creating a virtual seed company and case studies for each functional area, the course content is very interactive. During each of the four case studies, participants assume a different functional responsibility within the company. The course gives employees that are new to the seed industry a broad understanding of the major aspects of a seed company’s operations and cross-departmental knowledge of best practices for profitability.
