SEED

Valley Ag Supply is proud to carry a strong lineup of corn, soybean, and alfalfa seed, along with offering a variety of cover crop seed and blends. 

Dekalb/Asgrow and Croplan Dealer

Placing the right seed on the right field is extreamly important to maximize the yield potential of each seed variety. Being partnered with Dekalb, Asgrow, and Croplan brands allows us to attend multiple trainings and updates throughout the year, along with planting and observing our own test plots to compare hybrids. This allows us to make sure we have the most up to date information about our seed so we can help our growers place each hybrid in the right field based on factors such as soil types and fertility management. 

Seed Treatment

We make sure our growers can protect their soybean investments by offering seed treatment with fungicide, insecticide, and inoculant options. Treating the soybeans helps give the seed an even emergence, healthy start, and protection during early critical stages. 

Variable Rate 

With a history of yield data we can draw out zones in your field to make planting prescriptions to vary the seed planting populations. The most consistant way to get a good seeding map is to have past harvest data (at least 2 years of corn and 1 year of soybeans). 
We can also use a tool called R7 to create a planting prescription map. R7 has in-season images from up to 10 years back that show us the high biomass areas (which should have produced more yield) and low biomass areas (which have a yield drag). With this technology it helps us to see how consistant the yeild is over time. If the maps are similar we can overlay them and draw out zones of different seeding populations.  

Cover Crops

Using cover crops can be a great way to improve the quality of your soil and to manage soil erosion and fertility. Valley Ag Supply has access to a variety of different cover crop seed and blends to meet the needs for your field. Ask one of our agronomist to help you determine what cover crops will work for the specific goals you have for your operation.
