Always learning to provide unbiased seed recommendations

To provide our growers with the best seed recommendations from so many brands, we get out in the field and learn.

We collect data from seed plots spread throughout our territory, so we can get a broad view of how they work. Our long experience with the brands we represent also helps us understand what seed performs best on an individual field.

Ask us for a consultation on your farm for an unbiased assessment. Let us put our knowledge to work for you to determine which seed options are most likely to meet your objectives.

Consolidated seed guide to quickly compare

Fessenden Co-op produces a seed guide to make it easier for growers to compare hybrids and varieties. We combine data sheets across brands in one spot to give you what you need to make decisions

Ask for your consolidated seed guide, and you’ll never go back to sorting through books again! Contact Brian Beckley @ (701) 547-3018 or bbeckley@fesscoop.com

Plots

We monitor seed plots across our territory as part of our commitment to help you make the best decisions for your land and way of farming.

These plots provide local, not regional, data to get a better understanding of performance. We also use large scale plots with rows up to one-half-mile long to better assess real-world crop performance.

We’ll be posting last year’s data on the site soon. Check back often.

Seed treatment

Conditions are rarely perfect when a seed goes in the ground. Seed treatments can provide added protection to get plants off to a healthy start.

Ask us about options for seed treatment. Our wheat and soybean seed treaters are in Carrington, Sheyenne, Fessenden, Maddock, and Esmond.

Plant nutrition for a wide range of crops

With so much to do in the spring and fall, it seems that timelines are compressed more each growing season. That’s why it pays to partner with Fessenden Co-op Association for your crop nutrient needs. We’ll help prepare you for each season and get the work done.

In addition to sources of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium, we carry a wide range of specialty products, micronutrients and nitrogen stabilizers.

We’re always evaluating new products, and we look at them critically through research and prior data. We make sure a product works before we recommend it to our growers!

Facilities and Equipment

Our main hub is in Hamberg. This modern plant offers dry and liquid fertilizers and various micronutrients. It is capable of loading out 500-600 tons/hour of fertilizer products. 

We have storage in Esmond, Fessenden, Carrington, and Sheyenne. We serve custom-application customers from these locations, and we also can deliver. We utilize six spreaders and 14 tenders to handle applications when you need them.
