Premier Seed

Seed industry development in Nigeria started in Year 1984 with the establishment of Agricultural Seed Limited (AgSeed) owned by the Multinational Leventis Group of Companies.

Agricultural Seeds Limited was later acquired by Pioneer Hi-Bred Seed International of United States of America and went into partnership with Obasanjo Holdings Limited (OHL), as a Joint Venture, and re-named Pioneer Hi-Bred Seed Nigeria Limited. It was incorporated as a Limited Liability Company in 1992. The withdrawal of Pioneer, the Foreign Partner in 1994 brought another change in status of the Company.

The Company formally Parental Line Seed Limited was incorporated in Nigeria as a Private Limited Liability Company on the 9th August 1989. By a resolution of the Board of Directors of Parental Line Seed Limited, its name was changed to Premier Seed Nigeria Limited (PSNL) on 28th of June 1994. This was how the emergence of the first fully indigenous Private Seed Company in Nigeria came into being. It is now one of the subsidiaries of the business conglomerate of Obasanjo Holdings Limited (OHL).

Thus in retrospect, the Company which started as AgSeed has metamorphosed into Pioneer and finally into Premier Seed that has now become a household name in seed business in Nigeria. It is the foremost leader in the industry, a pace-setter which activities have earned the Company the national accolade “Premiers First, Others Follow”, and whose fame is fast growing and activities being recognized internationally.
