South 89 Seed Works Year-Round for You
The greatest seeds and products in the world are just the start for us. We enjoy using our extensive local research and experience to help farmers plan, plant, and harvest bumper crops.
Your Partner In Production
Founded in 2010 by Amy Brateng, South 89 Seed specializes in delivering knowledge tailored to their customers’ operations, maturity needs, and crop rotations. We prioritize being available to meet whenever it’s convenient to customers and offering prompt delivery of high-quality seed, good communication, and seed treatment coverage.
In 2018, we added a full-time sales agronomist and started offering crop protection products. Amy leads the customer service and sales portion of the business and her husband, Tony, assists with decision making and equipment purchasing. Amy and Tony grow Kentucky Bluegrass and Perennial Ryegrass for seed production, spring wheat and soybeans, and occasionally canola, corn, and sunflowers.
With so many crops in the mix for customers, the growing season being short, and harvest starting in July, we spend a lot of time in our customers’ fields scouting and taking notes so we can offer the best insight and advice. Our goal is to become a trusted partner in customers’ farming operations.
South 89 Seed has won the Pioneer Long Look award for exemplifying the Pioneer Long Look mission statement. Our company is an active supporter of Roseau County 4H, robotics clubs, and schools.
