Your seed choice is one of the most important steps in reaching your yield goals.  Our seed specialists are trained to place the appropriate hybrid to your field based on your specific growing conditions and farming practices.  

We can assist in crop and hybrid selections by using technology to understand how each hybrid or variety responds to input factors such as variable population rates or fertilizer responses.  We provide quality seed products featuring brands such as Dekalb®,  Asgrow®, Croplan® and Mycogen®.    

Please contact our seed salesman to match the seed for your needs.

The Garden City Co-op has the capability to custom blend and deliver these products as well as custom or variable rate apply any fertilizer to ensure our members are able to optimize the goals of their farming operation.

To help maximize your input dollar, the Garden City Co-op has access to multiple input financing programs to meet different credit needs for agronomy inputs.  Based on the product or service being financed, we can provide a program with a rate, term, and credit amount that best fits your cash flow needs.  

Depending on credit qualifications, we can extend regular credit terms, or provide input financing through partner programs.  We offer programs through CFA, Secure by Winfield® United, John Deere® Financial, Rabobank, and seed and crop protection programs through select manufacturers.
