Miller Seed is a fourth generation owned and operated seed company, specializing in Native grasses, cool season grasses, wetland grasses, turf grasses, fertilizers and erosion control products. The Miller family traces its seed industry origin back to a partnership formed in 1939 with Cyrus C Miller and his sons, Glenn E. and Cyrus T. The partnership of C.C. Miller and Sons operated as handler of grass seed. The partnership was dissolved after Cyrus T. was killed in World War II ; however, Glenn remained in the grass business.
With Glenn's leadership, Miller Seed Company became one of the worlds largest companies to specialize in the harvesting, processing and merchandising of native grasses. This growth brought about the construction of the Lincoln, Nebraska plant in 1950. Since that time, the plant has undergone five expansion projects. Hybrid Sorghum was added to the seed line in the 1950's with the building of a production facility in Hereford, Texas. Hybrid seed corn was also added to the product line in the 1960's with the brand name Horizon. During the 70's and 80's, all Miller Seed row crops were marketed under the brand name Horizon Seeds. With the coming of the biotechnology in the 90's, the decision was made to join forces with the firm Biotechnica Agriculture, which acquired all the seed lines of corn, soybeans and sorghum.
Miller Seed continues to remain dedicated to providing customers the best quality seed possible.
