ST. PAUL, MINN. – Minn-Dak Growers, Ltd. and CHS Inc. have agreed to jointly contract, service and market certain commodities for the 2014 and 2015 growing seasons. Growers for Minn-Dak across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana will have access to the agronomic field expertise and contract services from CHS, along with expanded marketing support.

“Our Minn-Dak growers stand to benefit greatly from an agronomic, sales, marketing and research standpoint from our relationship with CHS,” said Harris Peterson, president of Minn-Dak Growers, a global supplier of mustard, buckwheat and safflower for food ingredient applications.

CHS Inc., a farmer-owned cooperative, globally supplies confectionery sunflower and small grains.

“This is an efficient way to bring enhanced services and market opportunities to area growers,” said Robert Deraas, president of CHS. “It’s one more way we demonstrate our commitment to helping our owners grow their businesses.”
