About Us

Seed Source Genetics is a family owned corporation that was formed in December of 2004. It purchased the inventory and marketing rights of the cold tolerant cotton from Douglass King Seed Company of San Antonio, TX. Edward is President of the Corporation. He is a 1964 graduate of about-usTexas A & I University, now TAMU in Kingsville, TX with a B.S. degree in Agricultural Education and Administration. He taught in the public schools for 16 years before returning to the farm full time in 1980. He became involved with the cold tolerant cotton in 2001, when he was a Douglass King Seed Dealer and Douglass King brought the seed to South Texas. Edward is convinced that earliness has a place in the cotton industry. By planting early he gets ahead of the boll and bud worm problems and the boll weevil in the Rio Grande Valley. By planting early he utilizes the early season moisture and moves his harvest up into late July and early August before the hurricane season in South Texas.
