Yield Quest. A technology service provided by Centra Sota Cooperative

Decisions have to be made. Getting it right means everything — to your farm, to your family and
to your future.

Yield Quest makes sure that when it comes to technology and agronomy that you don’t have to
make those decisions alone. At the end of the day its the people who make the difference. And
at the end of the season that’s what makes Yield Quest different from the rest of the precision
programs out there. They’re on your team answering your questions, discovering new
production methods and pushing not only yield but also profit from each and every acre.


We are a customer owned company that provides goods and services to both the agricultural market as well as the urban consumer.

  • Owned by our customers

  • Our customer success is our success

  • The partner you can count on

Our job at Centra Sota is to identify the problem and provide the proper solution.


Centra Sota Cooperative is about people – our customers, our members and our family of employees. Our high standard for customer service is not just a business strategy, it is an essential part of who we are and how we operate.

As a cooperative, we are supported by our members who in return receive patronage. Our members also have access to many benefits and services by supporting Centra Sota Cooperative.

The Centra Sota story began in 1877 when farmers joined together to market milk and butter through a local creamery. In 1922, Producers Coop Creamery was formed and became the first cooperative to produce Land O Lakes Sweet Cream Butter.

Since the 1940s, we have grown and acquired other cooperatives in central Minnesota, resulting in the name change to Centra Sota Cooperative. While we have a history of growth, our focus has remained on the benefit it would have for our member owners, and not growing for growth sake.

Our business has continued to evolve as we strive to not just meet, but to exceed, the expectations of our members and our growing base of customers.

We are now a well-rounded cooperative with strong business units in agronomy, energy, feed and grain, country stores, and lawn care.

Our knowledgeable, dependable team delivers a comprehensive menu of products and services. A core part of our strength stems from innovation and we strive to be a leader when it comes to everything from new products and techniques to new technologies and best practices.
