Seed

At Sunrise Cooperative, we tap into the extensive database of the Answer Plot® by WinField program to identify corn hybrids and soybean varieties with consistent yields and plant performance traits for this region. Then, we plant them in our own test plots, using the same fertilizer and crop protection strategies we recommend for you. This kind of rigorous screening gives us a high degree of confidence when making our customized seed recommendations for your corn and soybean acres.

Boosting yields through hybrid selection.

Choosing the right hybrids might be the single most important thing corn growers can do to boost yields. In a recent Midwestern corn trial, there was a 60 bushel per acre difference between the highest and lowest yielding hybrids. The professional crop advisors at Sunrise can help make sure you’re planting the right seed on the right acre.

Getting to know you and the land you farm.

At Sunrise, we start by learning everything we can about the land you farm: the drainage, soil types, tillage practices, insect and disease pressures, nutrient levels and yield history. Then, we identify a group of corn hybrids and soybean varieties that have proven themselves under growing conditions much like yours. Our portfolio of seed varieties is comprised of industry-leading picks designed to match your end-use expectations, including selections from CROPLAN, DEKALB, Asgrow and Mycogen.

Protect your investment.

We recommend protecting the corn hybrids and soybean varieties you choose with high-quality seed treatments. Seed treatments are more effective against specific insect and disease pathogens than ever before including seedling diseases and nematodes. Using seed treatments also helps seeds during cool, wet spring weather and promotes faster growth after germination.
