At Landus Cooperative, we offer a variety of seed, along with seed plot results and variable rate seeding recommendations, to help your operation fulfill its potential.
Landus Cooperative’s AcreEdge® seed brand is a geographically-targeted soybean seed lineup bred for results on your acres.
We select traits from the same pool of genetics as the world’s largest seed companies. Because we’ve been doing it for 30 years, we’ve developed seeds with genetics and traits that perform in your fields.
The AcreEdge seed value proposition begins with soybean seed planted on your farm. At harvest, Landus Cooperative buys your soybeans and processes them into value-added, global-branded dairy feed products that enhance patronage opportunities for all cooperative members.
From AcreEdge, you can expect:
- Genetics that match your soils, environment and management practices
- Assurance that all seed has been tested and validated for consistent quality and performance
- Backing from Landus Cooperative’s full team of agronomists
Landus Cooperative also offers DeKalb and Asgrow hybrids and varieties, optimized for superior performance within our region. Because Landus Cooperative agronomists have access to the extensive Bayer® knowledge base, we can provide exclusive information on products and practices for your farm.
Non-GMO and Cover Crop Seed
Our farmer-members are looking for diverse options, and we’re here to assist you in being as profitable as possible. To that end, Landus Cooperative offers a variety of specialty seeds including non-GMO soybeans, cover crops and other small seeds.
Variable Rate Seeding Recommendations
Soybean and corn variable rate seeding can maximize performance and minimize over-seeding.
We work with growers on varying soybean and corn populations based on their specific farm goals. Utilizing zones is an improved method of using soil types or yield data to create the best variable rate recommendation possible for your operation.
If you’re interested in variable rate seeding, visit with your field sales agronomist.
Your Landus Cooperative agronomist can assist you in selecting crop nutrients for your acres, whether you apply them yourself or we provide application services.
Soil Sampling Recommendations
Our agronomy team offers both zone and grid soil sampling. Using these samples, along with field history, we’ll develop a prescription for your acres that will include nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, lime and more.

The Mosaic Company’s MicroEssentials® is the leading, sulfur-enhanced fertilizer combining four key nutrients into a single, nutritionally balanced granule, ensuring uniform nutrient distribution with every application for season-long fertility.
By delivering uniform distribution, MicroEssentials ensures balanced nutrition at the plant level—not just across the field. This results in increased root interception sites and healthier root development so each plant is able to reach its full potential.
RemaiN® Nitrogen Stabilizer
Landus Cooperative is an exclusive Iowa dealer for RemaiN nitrogen stabilizer, which helps you protect your urea and UAN nutrient investment.
Research shows that up to 40 percent of nitrogen can be lost, due to ammonia volatilization, when urea or UAN is not adequately incorporated. Volatilization takes place when the urease enzymes break the urea molecule into ammonia gas, which can be lost to the air. This occurs in both warm and cold temperatures. Nitrogen can also be lost through leaching, which is increasingly scrutinized as concerns mount over water quality.
With RemaiN, your nitrogen stays in the root zone where it’s available to nourish your crops season-long.
Whether you need crop protection products, application assistance or both, Landus Cooperative is here to help you.
Our agronomy team is ready to provide every aspect of your crop protection program, including scouting. We have many years of experience and stand by our products and recommendations.
Landus Cooperative is proud to have a team of experienced and highly-trained applicators to add to your work force.
This team uses state-of-the-art application and tendering equipment worth millions of dollars. We apply crop nutrients, including custom anhydrous ammonia, and crop protection products.
