Greg will be running Incotec’s two major operations in Salinas (California) and in Urbandale, Des Moines (Iowa). Des Moines is in the core of the North American field crop market and close to major customer locations for corn, soybeans, rice and other field crops. In May 2018, Incotec re-opened the completely modernized and automated seed enhancement operation for vegetables in Salinas, California. The facilities feature a new R&D lab and offices, new seed storage warehouse, new production equipment and employee facilities. This was followed in April 2019 by the opening of a new Innovation Center in Des Moines, Iowa with emphasis on sales and R&D in field crops.
