Perham Area Chamber Ambassadors also visited Dynamic Cropping Systems (Owners: Michael Steeke and Jerry Morberg), a company that uses data & expertise to create an all-in-one environment where a grower can stop in and plan his year from the furrow on up!  Our goal is to offer products to growers that have the highest return on investment for each dollar they spend. Our biggest concern when entering into this business was customer service and honesty/integrity in recommending the products we sell, because growers can’t afford to be misguided in the current economic times.

Dynamic Cropiing Systems is located at 42808 St. Hwy. 108, Perham
