Nurture The Seeds Of Success

High yields don’t happen by accident. They require careful management and the agronomic expertise that United Farmers Cooperative can provide.
 
It all starts with the seed. United Farmers Cooperative offers a wide selection of industry-leading genetics from Croplan®, Asgrow/Dekalb®, NK®, Mycogen®, Credenz™ soybeans, and non-GMO seed from eMerge® Genetics. Growers also count on us for competitively priced seed treatments/inoculants, anhydrous ammonia, and other crop nutrients (including liquid and dry products) and pre-emerge herbicides to get their crops off to a strong start.
 
During the growing season, targeted crop protection products and micronutrient foliar feeding programs can enhance plant health and maximize your crop’s yield potential. United Farmers Cooperative’s agronomists and certified crop advisors (CCA) can help you select the right herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and specialty products—and use them judiciously—to protect plant health.
 
To increase your knowledge, we host field days during the growing season and share data from our research plots after harvest to detail what products and practices performed the best in our geography.
