On February 2, 1948  Leland Stratton was asked by a good customer, Nelson Rogers, to form a partnership and purchase Albert Steel’s seed business located at 320 North Main. The plant consisted of one small seed cleaner in an old wooden rice mill that’s on the left in this picture. This location became what we call our Main Street location. The wooden mill had been built in the 1920’s. Seed was cleaned by hand-scooping seed off trucks directly into the cleaner and catching the cleaned seed in burlap bags that were weighed on a platform scale and hand sewn with a needle and cotton thread. In 1949 an elevator leg & truck dump were added.
This is our Main Street location as it operates today. 
The company has made two major acquisitions over the years: In 1989 Stratton Seed purchased the seed operation of Winrock Farms in Carlisle, AR and added additional processing and 400,000 bushel bulk storage. Additional warehouse space has been added since the purchase.

In 1992, Stratton Seed purchased the assets of a competitor, Bogard Seed Company, and added over 800,000-bushel bulk capacity in

The highway 79 plant, completed in 1999 is by far the largest and newest of our facilities. It is the largest soybean and wheat seed conditioning plant in the Southern United States. The plant has the capacity to store approximately 1.5 million bulk bushels.


 In addition to offering high quality seed produced on irrigated ground, we offer a wide range of crop input products and services. The picture below is our bulk fertilizer warehouse and suspension blending plant.
