University of Florida (UF) leaders are hosting executives from a global seed company in Gainesville this week for a big announcement. When you consider Limagrain is the world’s fourth largest seed company overall, and its HM.CLAUSE Vegetable Seed business unit is number two in vegetable seeds, it’s a pretty big deal that the entire board of directors and executive team are in town to be a part of it. In addition to touring UF’s ag research facilities this week, they are here to formally announce a unique investment and support program for the “Challenge 2050 Project” at UF/IFAS. If you’re a Florida farmer, you’ll want to spend two minutes to hear this quick report, including comments from UF Senior Vice President for Agriculture and Natural Resources, Jack Payne, who joined the press conference Monday with CEOs of both Limagrain and HM.CLAUSE, involving journalists from several U.S. farm and seed publications, and others visiting from France to cover the story.
