Your Most Profitable Acres
Our fathers taught us that it is better to buy a tool and learn to use it for a lifetime, than it is to hire a fix every year. We see a lot of farmers with high capacity sprayers and a generation eager to earn their place on the farm and believe the equipment updates in the last several years make weed and insect control a game changer for the professional farm. We also see farmers partner to own these sprayers and working out ways to apply late nitrogen, cover crops or other “extra” work that makes a difference to their bottom line.
Upon these belief and experience we see Spectrum Seed being the most profitable acres on the farm. This occurs as the result of our top line genetics and also our fair prices and how the two combine with solid agronomic practices on the farm.

If we fulfill our part, and you fulfill yours, we should be able to provide high food grade, low contaminant grain together for a many years.
How to Farm Without Traits
Weed control without glyphosate is something many farmers are closer to these days than they realize. Most do burn down or pre-emerge programs that include residual herbicides and spend nearly as much on these herbicides that are doing the heavy lifting year in and year out. Backing off the glyphosate trait is a hurdle that some make, and when they do, it frees up a budget line item to pay for tools you get to keep.
Insect control for rootworm is handled in a few ways. Prior to stacks, many farmers used crop rotation with soybeans. That’s not that hard, right? If you’re scared, a little insecticide goes a long way as an insurance policy.
Already applying insecticide through your seed treatment or post spray? No worries, we can deliver the best treatments in the industry as well.
Premium Food Grade Grain Adds Revenue
Quality Adds Value
Our premium genetics are not to be confused with premium grain premiums. Our genetics yield because of the care we place in breeding and product selection for your environment. But, when it comes to selling non-GMO or selling food-grade grain, we have paid extra special attention, because we know these qualities can drive top line revenue for you (in select market areas.)
When buyers begin offering 50 cents or more per bushel your ears should perk up. Across 230 bushel per acre that alone drives $115 per acre of value. Considering most of our customers actually enjoy reduced input costs by using other pest control methods a $150+ /acre swing in profit on 2,000 acres of corn is $300,000. That’s the kind of money that buys farms and sends kids to college. If you have a market that we are not yet an approved genetic supplier, please contact us as we are eagerly sending test grain to these buyers to assure we can support you.
