Matt M. testing out the new Precision Planter

Our Precision Planter and John Deer 6110M tractor

On Wednesday, April 24th, 2019 we received an incredible new piece of technology that, coupled with our GPS Greenstar enabled tractor (John Deere 6110 M), will help us plant any seed with higher precision, accuracy, and efficiency! This tech is called the Almaco 360 SeedPro 4-row Precision Planter, and we can't wait to start using it. This spring, we plan to use it as we plant sorghum, maize, and hemp.


Start the video below to see the new Precision Planter in action!
