Seed the Benefit

Make more money

Buying new seed each season makes you more money. And we would say that even if we didn’t sell seed. Buying new seed is convenient. Peterson Farms Seed meets very strict quality requirements. You can rest assured our seed is of the highest quality and highest yielding product vs. bin run, and you have a reliable supply in many maturities.

Support innovation

Buying new seed is economical. Cleanout loss is about 10-15% for bin run seed, and bin run planting rates are generally 15% higher than new seed. Buying new seed supports new innovations. Heard of drought tolerant corn? Low nitrogen use corn? Dicamba-resistant soybeans? Buying new seed helps pay for the development of these new technologies. Buying new seed just makes cents. (Pardon the pun.)

SEED USE RESTRICTION AGREEMENT

This Seed Use Restriction Agreement (the “Agreement”) applies to all users (“User(s)”) of the seed (“Seed”) contained in this package. If you purchase the Seed, you agree that you and any person or entity, including employees, representatives, contractors and agents thereof, who plant, grow, cultivate or otherwise use the Seed, will abide by these use restrictions. If you open or cause any person or entity to open a package of Seed, you agree that you accept the terms of this Agreement, and you, your employees, representatives, contractors and agents will abide by these use restrictions.

SEED USE AGREEMENT

M.S. Technologies, L.L.C. (“MS TECH”) and its suppliers are engaged in the business of developing and supplying for sale various varieties and/or hybrids of Seed. MS TECH and its suppliers have a substantial investment and expended substantial effort in the development and production of this seed, and in the use of subsequent production of Seed.  MS TECH and its suppliers have existing contractual relationships with other distributors for the sale of seed and expectations of additional contracts for sale of seed from such distributors in the future. The purchase of the Seed includes a limited license to produce a single crop under MS TECH property rights, including where applicable certain U.S. patents which can be found on the package and seed tags.

In consideration of the foregoing, and in consideration of the Seed that User has been sold or otherwise granted the right to use, User hereby acknowledges and agrees that the production from the Seed will be used only for feed or processing, and unless USER has an agreement for such purposes, Seed and plants produced from Seed will not be used or sold for seed, breeding, or any variety or hybrid development or  improvement purposes; these restrictions apply to all plants produced from Seed, including without limitation variant and inbred plants and Seed that may be contained in this package or grow from Seed.  User acknowledges MS TECH and its suppliers have a proprietary interest in the use of subsequent production from the Seed, and agrees it would be a violation of this Agreement to allow the subsequent production of the Seed to be used to create any seed variety or seed product from said production. Any export of this Seed or its progeny from the country of purchase is strictly prohibited, except that forage or grain may be exported solely for use in feeding or processing.

User agrees and acknowledges that any use of the Seed, which is forbidden by this Agreement will constitute a misappropriation of the property of MS TECH and its suppliers and will therefore result in a breach of this Agreement. User agrees that MS TECH and/or its suppliers may bring an action to recover damages as a result of the breach of this Agreement, along with reasonable attorney fees and costs associated with any action commenced in regard thereto. User further agrees that the exclusive venue for any dispute arising under this Agreement or in connection to any breach thereof shall be in the federal or state courts for Dallas County, Iowa, and hereby irrevocably consents to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. This Agreement shall be governed under the laws of the State of Iowa.

User agrees and acknowledges that any use of the Seed, which is forbidden by this Agreement, will damage MS TECH and its suppliers’ legitimate expectation of future sales of seed, and any use of Seed in violation of this Agreement will constitute an attempt to intentionally injure or destroy MS TECH and its suppliers’ prospective business expectations in future sales of seed.

User agrees and acknowledges that any use of Seed from MS TECH in violation of this Agreement will cause substantial damage to MS TECH and/or its suppliers, and that if subsequent production of the Seed is used to create a seed variety or seed product, substantial damage to MS TECH and or its suppliers for all seed varieties or seed products thereby created will be caused. This Agreement shall not limit any other rights, legal or equitable, that MS TECH and its suppliers have but shall be accumulative.

User agrees to only use agricultural herbicide that are expressly labeled for use in conjunction with the Seed and have received government approvals as specified in a product use guide.

NOTICE OF REQUIRED ARBITRATION

Under the seed laws of several states arbitration, mediation or conciliation is required as a prerequisite to maintaining a legal action based upon the failure of seed to produce as represented. The consumer shall file a complaint along with the required filing fee (where applicable) with the Commissioner/Director/Secretary of Agriculture, Seed Commissioner, or Chief Agricultural Officer within such time as to permit inspection of the crops, plants or trees by the designated agency and the seller from whom the seed was purchased. A copy of the complaint shall be sent to the seller by certified or registered mail or as otherwise provided by state statute.
