Farming has always had it's ups-and-downs. The early 90's was one of those down times. During that period, Robert Petrus envisioned creating a second business--a seed business, in order to help support his family. He new it was going to be a tough road, but he was dedicated and worked on it often after long days of farming in order to keep his dream alive. After much research, Petrus Seed & Grain opened it's doors in 1999. In two years, PSG had far outgrown working from the farmhouse and built it's first office.
We are constantly upgrading our facilities and equipment, in order to keep up with high demand from new customers. As a small town farm family, we have over three generations of agriculture experience and have no intentions on stopping anytime soon with a fourth generation in training. We have a rich understanding of agricultural environments as well as what farmers want---because we farm as well. This ensures your product is the best on the market!
We guarantee we will try our best to accommodate your needs. We conduct our research and produce what we believe will be the top economical varieties for the following year. However, speculation is difficult. Even if we do not have exactly what you are looking for, we have created great relationships with seed distributors in the southern and mid-western states and can get the seed you need for the cheapest price. Give us a call. However, If we cannot help you this this season, we would love a chance to try again next season!
Robert created PSG from scratch. He spent his whole life farming and most of his early knowledge was gained from the school of hard-knocks by working with his father and uncles. Since then technology has changed farming, but his values and ethics have remained constant. He works a lot of hours, and the company is much better for it.
John earned his B.S.A. (Agricultural Business) from Arkansas State University and has been running the farming operations since 2006. The only thing he enjoys better at work than planting seed in the spring is driving a combine during the hot autumn harvest. He pulls his own weight by monitoring the seed treating facility and overseeing the warehouse operations which is a much bigger task than one would think.
Terry is our administrative expert. She tracks all of the billing, ensures all product documentation is current, and oversees pretty much everything else that pertains to necessary paperwork in the business. Although she spends most of her time behind a desk, she considers herself extremely lucky; because she gets to be with her family everyday.
Wesley has created several of the systems that PSG uses today and is always trying to make the business more efficient. He has served as an engineer in the U.S. Army for over a past decade and continues to serve today. He is convinced this has helped him to developed a unique set of planning and organizational skills. When a problem arises, Wesley does not stop trying to solve it until he finds an effective solution.
