Custom Seed Production
and Seed Multiplication

We provide custom seed production and multiplication of hybrid and open pollinated vegetable seeds on a contract basis to clients worldwide.

Using your own stock seed or Dixon Seed's stock, we offer seed production, multiplication and conditioning for large or small quantities.

Quality, Flexibility, Timing and Reliability

We serve domestic and international breeding programs, seed wholesalers/distributors, food companies and seed companies needing seed production, treatment and custom packaging.

Located 70 miles north of Sacramento, California, in one of the most productive agricultural environments in the world, Dixon Seed has been in operation since 1995.

The Northern California climate provides ideal seed growing conditions with a dry season, a frost free growing season and a long harvest season from April to October.

Regular field inspection, roguing of fields and germination testing with an independent lab ensure impeccable seed quality, increasing your yield potential.

We have over 26,000 square feet of storage space to maintain the quality of harvested seeds on site.

Located 175 miles from a major port where both domestic and international ocean and air shipments can be handled easily, we are able to offer flexible delivery times. We work closely with customers to help expedite shipments. Easy access to the main interstate also enables us to ship by truck anywhere in the continental US with delivery from 1 to 5 days. Our flexibility and reliability are essential to our longlasting customer relationships.

Our goal is to supply seeds of the highest quality, along with expert advice and professional services to our valued customers around the world.
