Billy Simmons, Owner

A new company is rising, and it’s bringing you expanded choice, local focus, and unmatched expertise.

Welcome to Tidewater Seed, a locally-owned, independent seed company providing corn and soybean genetics exclusively to the DelMarVa and Mid-Atlantic regions. Launched in 2013, Tidewater Seed is bringing the market the very best genetics, traits, and technology from the world’s top-rated labs and production companies.

Owner Billy Simmons is a 40-year industry veteran who understands that farmers want broad choices in genetics and technology to achieve the best results for their own acres. Tidewater Seed gives DelMarVa and Mid-Atlantic farmers access to elite genetics from across the industry, allowing farmers to design and implement highly individualized growing plans tailored to their own soils and local growing conditions. By running and maintaining rigorous local testing programs on our products, we can ensure that the best genetics and traits are selected for your specific growing conditions.

Tidewater Seed keeps your genetics options open through its representation of the AXIS Seed brand, an independent and rapidly growing national brand that offers a broad portfolio of the industry’s top-performing genetics and traits. The AXIS Seed management team is filled with industry veterans who understand the advantages that come with freedom of choice in seed decisions.

“Although the company and brand I represent have changed, one thing remains constant: the high level of service and trusted advice that I have provided DelMarVa and Mid-Atlantic farmers for more than a decade.”
