New iPad seed-buying app from Great Lakes Hybrids

New iPad seed-buying app from Great Lakes Hybrids

Great Lakes Hybrids has launched a new iPad app that is an interactive seed guide to help growers make seed-purchasing decisions. The app is free and downloadable from the iTunes Store.  

The new seed app allows growers to search for products by name, trait or maturity. Performance data and agronomic details can be compared and products can be viewed in a variety of stages in full-color images.

Once downloaded to the iPad, the application is fully functional even without the availability of an Internet connection.

The iPad application also contains information from other industry suppliers. This collaboration allows customers to access information about the following options from Great Lakes Hybrids’ partners: 

Genuity - Access trait information about available corn, soybean and alfalfa products, including Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans.

Agrisure - Learn more about the traits that are developed to provide effective insect control and herbicide tolerance in corn products.

Acceleron and Poncho/Votivo - Scroll through details about how to protect your seed investment and improve yield by using leading seed treatment products offered through Great Lakes Hybrids.

John Deere Financial and Rabo AgriFinance – Financing option information can be viewed in video format. Risk Management - Market advisory and financing options are available through this application in these times of market volatility.

“An investment in seed is one of the largest expenses a grower will make,” said Doug Little, Great Lakes Hybrids general manager. “We wanted to give our customers all of the information they need, right at their fingertips, with the goal of helping our customers maximize the return on their seed investments and grow their business.”

Great Lakes Hybrids worked with Martinez Creative Group of St. Charles, Ill., for the development of the app. For more information about Great Lakes Hybrids, visit
