Agronomy: SEED

Modern producers are confronted with innumerable managerial decisions that will determine success or failure. Our purpose here at Earlybird is to ease the pressure by providing you with the best genetics and traits available. We maintain a local test plot to continually evaluate new products and technologies and identify new hybrids uniquely suited to your farming operation and practices. Earlybird Seed is dedicated to maximizing your yield by offering you the following array of leading genetics:


Earlybird Seed can also help you mitigate early season risk with a fully customized seed treatment facility. Regardless of whether you are looking for disease protection from yield robbing pathogens or needing to add a high-quality soybean inoculant to the mix for a field coming out of continuous corn, we can precisely apply the right treatment. All seed treated at Earlybird comes standard with four fungicides for superior control of Pythium, Phytophthora, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, & early infection of SDS and imidicloprid insecticide for early season protection from insects.  We have the capability to treat on-demand so you are not stuck with treated seed at the end of the year.  In addition, Earlybird Seed has bulk boxes and seed tenders available for customer use during the planting season.
