    South 89 Seed Works
    Year-Round for You

    The greatest seeds and products in the world are just the beginning for us. We use our extensive local research and experience to help farmers plan, plant, and harvest bumper crops.

    Your Partner in Production

    We proudly serve farmers across Northwest Minnesota. Whether you face the rich Red River Valley soils in the West or the silty loam of the former Lake Agassiz basin and Lake of the Woods to the east, we’ll help you find the right crop mixes and rotations for your operation’s unique needs.

    Farmers ourselves, we understand the challenges of our area’s short growing season. We believe the best way to gain insights is by getting out in the field — whether it's ours or yours. It’s this level of commitment that has earned us a reputation as a trusted partner to farming operations throughout Northwest Minnesota.

    Our Story

    Founded in 2010, South 89 Seed has always taken a customer-first approach, with owners Tony and Amy Brateng tailoring services to each grower’s individual operations, maturity needs, and crop rotations.

    In the early years, South 89 Seed offered prompt delivery of high-quality Pioneer® seed and seed treatment, with Amy specializing in crop planning and field mapping. In 2018, Carl Gaukerud joined South 89 Seed and added spring wheat seed varieties and crop protection to our catalog of products. As the business continued to grow, so did the team. Blaine Kriel joined South 89 Seed in 2020.

    In addition to the seed business, Tony and Amy operate a small grains and grass seed production farm. Over the years, they’ve gained important insights into product performance and placement through on-the-farm testing.
