Cutting Edge Seed and Chemical was founded in the summer of 2014 by the group listed below, all of which are in the seed industry.
Being from the seed industry gives Cutting Edge a huge advantage over your normal coop or chemical retailer. This is because selling seed is a completely different selling experience than chemical it is all based on relationships, having great products, getting to know the
farmers and their individual farms, and putting these all together with a fair price.
NuTech came out with a program called "Pair up to Out Perform" that is based on buying NuTech seed and Dupont chemicals together. By doing this, the farmer receives a rebate on the chemicals. This program got the group thinking about providing Dupont chemicals along with other brands to their large customer base. Combining this group of dealers/farmers and culminating their acres allows Cutting Edge greater buying power to get you, the farmer, a better price. Cutting Edge, with this core group of dealers, also farm and have a good knowledge base about the products they represent because they use them on their own farms.
Cutting Edge along with NuTech Seed also carry a full lineup of forages, tritacallie, rye, wheat seed, and cover crops.

AgSource had record growth with a reputation for having reasonably priced seed and top performance. In the early 2000's, AgSource and NuTech merged together to leverage their volume. AgSource sold soybeans, but was primarily a corn company. Conversely, NuTech sold corn, but was primarily a soybean company. The merger went extremely well. So much so, that ProAccess/Dupont bought NuTech five years after the merger. Since the purchase, NuTech's sales in Nebraska have almost doubled.
