We Know These Fields

Overview

When it comes to finding a partner in agronomy, most cooperatives offer the latest and greatest products and technology. The difference is in execution, and that’s where we excel.
 
At Central Region Cooperative, we deliver a customer experience that is second to none. Our agronomy account managers work hard to understand your specific farm goals, and they help you build a management plan that’s geared towards achieving your goals as efficiently as possible to maximize yield and profitability on every acre. We provide peace of mind through our accurate and timely custom application services. We carry crop nutrient and crop protection products that are tried and true, and yet we continue to find innovative products that can prove practical results. We also offer a number of precision agronomy services and technology platforms.
 
Central Region Cooperative has agronomy centers located in Sleepy Eye, Buffalo Lake and Fairfax to ensure that our quality products and services are always available to meet your needs. Read on to learn more about our product portfolios and service offerings, and give us a call to start realizing your operation’s fullest potential.

Crop Protection Products

Central Region Cooperative offers a complete lineup of quality herbicide, insecticide and fungicide products from every major manufacturer. Our forward-thinking agronomy account managers will guide you through the seemingly endless list of products to help you create a pre and post planting crop protection plan that mitigates the challenges that weeds, pests and diseases can bring to your field in any given season.
 
Our crop protection services include:

  • Crop scouting (in-person, drones and aerial/satellite imagery)
  • Delivery of bulk or packaged products
  • Custom applications
  • Aerial spraying

Crop Nutrition

Central Region Cooperative fertilizer plants in Sleepy Eye, Buffalo Lake and Fairfax have you covered for any and all of the pre and post planting crop nutrients you need. In addition to our custom blending and bulk delivery service, our extensive product lineup includes:

  • Dry and liquid fertilizer
  • Anhydrous ammonia
  • Plant health products
  • WinField®United plant nutrition products
  • Compass Minerals’ portfolio of Wolf TraxDDP Nutrients, which come with EvenCoatTechnology to ensure that each and every granule of N, P, K or S in a fertilizer blend are coated, resulting in blanket-like distribution of the nutrient across the field, in close proximity to the plant roots and early plant uptake.

Our agronomy account managers will perform soil tests and analyze the results to help you create the ideal growing conditions in your fields before you put seed in the ground. They can also use in-season scouting observations and plant tissue analysis to help you determine if in-season nutrient applications are needed to give your crops a boost.
 
If you don’t have the time or the equipment to apply the nutrients yourself, our certified custom applicators specialize in:

  • Dry fertilizer spreading 
  • Impregnated VRT spreading
  • Top-dress application
  • Drop nozzle application
  • NH3 application
