About Mark Seed:
Mark Terpstra, a third generation seeds man, grew up in the very small town of Lynnville, Iowa. He went on to graduate from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. After working with his father’s company, Riverside Seed, which was one of the first private label soybean companies in the industry, Mark went on to work for Lubrizol, which eventually purchased Riverside Seed from the family in 1983. Soon after, Mark started up Mark Seed Company, which still operates today in Perry, Iowa.
Because Mark had been crossing genetics on soybeans since the age of 12, he also implemented a research division to develop new lines of his own genetic lines for production. What started out as a small research program has grown into over 50,000 different genetic lines and eventually Mark’s invention which is known as Cyst Tech Soybean technology. With 10+ years of scientific data on Cyst Tech and the patents for the technology in their final stages, the technology is set for release industry wide.
