The Garden City Co-op Crop Production Division is headquartered out of the Lowe Elevator office north of Holcomb, KS. We also have an office located in Dighton, KS. Both locations have knowledgeable sales and production staff to help you with all of your fertilizer, chemical, seed, and other crop production needs. There is also a full line of different custom application options available for fertilizer, chemical, and anhydrous ammonia to fill any of your application needs. Most of the storage capacity for fertilizer, chemical, and seed is at the Lowe location and from there is distributed to Dighton and other locations, including customer delivery. Multiple satellite ammonia plants are strategically placed throughout the Garden City Co-op territory providing customers with timely access to ammonia in their specific area.
The Garden City Co-op sales team is associated with several different companies to assist in your financing needs. FarmPlan offers several crop input programs that allow growers to lock in an attractive interest rate and carry their input costs usually until after the crop is harvested. They also work in conjunction with the Garden City Co-op to occasionally offer special low rate or no rate finance plans that vary each year and with each crop.
CFA (The Cooperative Finance Association, Inc.) is also associated with the Garden City Co-op in offering flexible finance options for crop inputs. Depending on the time of year and the programs available, they are able to design a finance package for almost every need on your farm.
Rabo Bank financing is also available for those people that prefer to work with them. They offer competitive rates and offer programs that allow growers to tailor a finance plan that works for them.
Contact any of the sales team or staff in the Crop Production Division of the Garden City Co-op or contact the Credit Manager, Phyllis Orozco, in the Main Office to discuss the many financing options available today.

Assessing Hail Damage
Things to Consider:
- Be patient. Damage usually looks worst right after the event. Give the crop a week to evaluate.
- Entering rapid growth stage. Plants putting new leaves on every 2-3 days.
- Hail may have caused stalk bruising which could contribute to standability concerns later in the season.
- Defoliation will encourage weed pressure once residual herbicides start to break down.
- Both defoliation and stand loss have occurred. Please refer to the provided Hail Guide below for evaluation tips.
Possible management applications:
- Fungicide applications to improve plant health and help prevent diseases due to stresses put upon plant.
- Nitrogen applications that contain strong concentrations of sulfer. (ie. ATS 12-0-0-26, and 28-0-0-5).
