    Join Us at the Farm Progress Show!

    August 15, 2016

    Posted by Stine Seed in Stine News

    Join Stine Seed Company at the 63rd annual Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, August 30 through September 1. The three-day event features the latest in farming technology and includes daily field demonstrations and more than 600 exhibitors.

    Visit Stine at Booth 1328, located on the east side of the show site. Speak to one of our sales representatives about Stine’s 2017 corn and soybean lineup and take a tour of our HP Corn® plot, which showcases Stine corn planted in 30-inch and the HP Twin 20-inch row configurations. And don’t forget to ask to see the John Deere DB60T 72-row 20-inch twin row planter developed in coordination with Stine. We’re excited to showcase the latest in high-population, narrow-row corn planting at this year’s show.

    Guests 18 years of age or older can also participate in our Stine® LibertyLink® Yield Zone promotion. Participants can win on the spot or register for the grand prize — a pallet of Stine LibertyLink soybeans or a Big Green Egg® grill with accessories.

    For more information on exhibitors and a map to this year’s Farm Progress Show, visit We look forward to seeing you there!

    Introducing the Stine® LibertyLink® Yield Zone Scratch-Off Promotion

    August 08, 2016

    Posted by Stine Seed in Stine News

    New for the 2016–2017 trade show season, we’re excited to introduce the Stine® LibertyLink® Yield Zone scratch-off ticket promotion. Trade show attendees have the opportunity to win not once, but twice through this new promotion, including a chance to win the grand prize — a pallet of Stine LibertyLink soybeans or a Big Green Egg® grill with accessories.

    To play, visitors must stop by one of our trade show booths and request a Stine LibertyLink Yield Zone ticket from a Stine sales representative. Participants will then scratch off their ticket for two chances to win. The first is a chance to scratch off panels to instantly win a USB power bank. The second is a chance to win the grand prize by completing the grand prize registration form on the back of the ticket.

    We’re excited to introduce trade show visitors to the Stine LibertyLink Yield Zone promotion. And as an industry leader in high-yielding Stine LibertyLink soybeans, we look forward to discussing this exciting technology with soybean growers at trade shows throughout the season.

    Put your field in the Stine LibertyLink Yield Zone today!  

    *Participants must be 18 years of age or older to participate. Each eligible participant should receive only one scratch-off ticket, and instant win prizes are available only while supplies last.

    Why Choose Stine

    July 22, 2016

    Posted by Bethany Oland in Stine News

    At Stine, we’re large enough to provide growers with a wide range of high-yielding corn and soybean lines, but we’re also small enough to be nimble and flexible. This is one of the many reasons why growers choose Stine and one of the many reasons why I enjoy working with the company.
