A history of success.

PhytoGen was founded in 1980 by the J.G. Boswell Company, a world-class cotton producer based in California.

While J.G. Boswell was developing cottonseed, Mycogen Seeds (an affiliate of Dow AgroSciences) was developing its own expertise in germplasm, cotton breeding and seed production. These two companies formed a joint venture in 1998 to offer the cotton industry the best of each.

Today, PhytoGen has become a leading cottonseed company, with a reputation of helping growers outbest their best and thrive in cotton. PhytoGen® brand varieties are consistently among the most-planted Upland cotton varieties, including the No. 1 most-planted Upland cotton varieties, and we are the market leader for Pima and Acala cotton varieties in the West.


Growers tell us they love PhytoGen® cottonseed for the top yield, unrivaled quality and higher return on investment.
“PhytoGen cottonseed was the highest yielder on the farm last year. It’s always at the top, if not the best on the farm.”
