With Channel, you’ll experience our Seedsmanship At Work® services on your farm through the year-round, hands-on, customized service of your Channel Seedsman. Your local Seedsman knows your fields and can recommend the elite seed products designed to perform in your area and maximize the profitability of every acre.
Your local Seedsman is there for you all year long, listening to your needs and providing value before the first seed is planted, throughout the growing season, and long after harvest. Your Seedsman will combine keen observation with firsthand knowledge of your fields to create recommendations tailored to your specific conditions.
The combination of great products and a Channel Seedsman putting them where they need to be led to the yield that we had this year. If I’m asked why I plant Channel, it's simple: if you're not, you are giving up yield.
