About Us

Our mission is clear. Lakeco Crop Services is here to help growers
achieve better yields, year after year.

Our team is invested in building strong relationships with each of our growers. That’s why we work with you to identify goals and provide the services you need to achieve those goals. We’re not just here to grow crops — we’re here to grow your farm operation.

Owner Rob Thuringer explains, “Providing excellent service, honest advice, and fair pricing on cash-and-carry crop protection is important to us. And that’s what we’re known for around here.”

Lakeco Crop Services opened in 2013 in Wentworth, South Dakota, and they’ve been committed to growers’ success in Lake County ever since.

Our team proudly sponsors and supports local 4-H and FFA chapters throughout the year. Additionally, Rob and Dave are both former members of the Chamber Ag Committee.
