Who is Channel
Channel specializes in corn and soybeans. The Channel seed brand was created to fill the farmer’s need for a trusted, knowledgeable adviser. Each day, we strive to deliver the best customer service in the industry by knowing our customers and the products that work best on their fields.
At Performance Ag Indiana, we make it a priority to learn about our customers and their farms first. Then that knowledge is used to help plan the season and provide personalized service through seeding, vegetative, reproductive and maturity stages of the growing season. Seedsmanship is about our products, helping transform the latest innovations into decision-making tools. The Channel Field Check Up Series allows us to work with our customers throughout the growing season to provide year round service solution.

We don't mind getting our boots muddy, so we'll walk right beside you to evaluate crop development and guide you through any challenges you may face throughout the growing season. Our goal is to know you, your fields, and your business to be available as a sounding board when you need it. We know every field is different, that's why we're going to be with you through each stage of the growing season:
In-Season Delivery...On Demand!
You can do the best planning in the world...but field conditions can vary and change - and you find yourself a bag or two short planting that last field. Don't worry - we keep many of our popular varieties in stock during planting season and we're just a phone call away. We'll deliver to your shop or to the field!

Protects from secondary insect pests such as wireworm, seedcorn maggot and white grub. Provides protection from soil and seed borne diseases, including Fusarium, Rhizoctonia and Pythium.
Channel brand seed corn is also available with Poncho/VOTiVO a biological mode of action that introduces a new way to protect seedlings and roots against nematodes.

In 2016, Performance Ag Indiana successfully completed in house treating of near 2,000 units of Soybeans. We strive to both save our customers money and get them exactly what they need-when they need it. In 2017, we made plans to install a permanent seed treater in our NEW facility that would be able to handle larger volumes of seed with great efficiency. We've purchased an LPV treater from USC that will treat 800 units an hour.
That's Seedsmanship at Work!
In preparation for the 2019 Planting Season, our LPV treater has been installed in our new facility and is ready to treat seed for our growers! Stay tuned for photo's!
