And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, that I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
-Deuteronomy 11:13&14

About Us

Prairie Hybrids is committed to providing you with High Quality seed, that should result in even emergence, which will result in high yield.

We are constantly striving to influence quality by doing our own production on our own farms. Quality is determined by giving attention to detail from the time the seed stock is planted, until the fin- ished product goes into the bag. Some of our quality is determined by using color sorter technology in our cleaning process. We select genetics by looking at yield, agronomic rating and natural insect protection.

I appreciate your business you have given us in the past and hope we can serve you in the future.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is by the gifts given to us by our Lord God Almighty to deliver seed corn to our customers with outstanding quality and vitality with selecting and creating the best genetics via our no-trait non-gmo research program specifically for the Farmer. When the customer plants our seed corn, that enables him to grow a crop that is environmentally healthy for the soil, animals, and humans. When the customer plants our hybrids that he receives the yield results the farmer so often looks for in his farming operation. We desire that all the credit for what we have achieved would go to our heavenly Father for it is only that which he has given us and nothing more. May God bless you.
