2021 Seed Offerings

December 1, 2020 | By: Nate Christie

It’s hard to believe November is in the rearview mirror and we’re in December now. Last newsletter I talked about the importance of having a crop plan in place as you finished up harvest and began thinking about the next growing season. Coming towards the end of the year, it’s time to start executing on that crop plan by selecting hybrids and varieties that are going to perform on your acres.

Farm Nutrients is proud to offer a full lineup of traited, conventional, and organic seed from three top performing seed brands: Integra, Rob-See-Co, and Blue River Organic Seed.


Integra Fortified Seed is a locally focused, quality driven seed company offering a high performing lineup of traited corn, silage, soybeans, alfalfa, sorghum, and cover cops.

Rob-See-Co is family owned and managed with a focus on 3 pillars: Simplicity, Relationships, and Technology. They offer Agrisure traited corn, Innotech brand Enlist E3 soybeans, WL branded alfalfa, and sorghum.

Blue River Organic Seed offers a full lineup of organic corn, silage, soybeans, alfalfa, and forages. They are focused on providing organic farmers an opportunity to stay true to their organic farming practices and principles without having to sacrifice performance.

Selecting your seed is one of the most important decisions you make in a growing season. Let us help make the decision easier. We’ve watched these company’s products perform in our own plots and other trials throughout the state. We’ll work with you to make sure the hybrids and varieties you choose will set you up to achieve your yield goals in 2021.
