In 1991, SeedMaster president and founder, Norbert Beaujot—a farmer himself and a professional engineer—created a simple but powerful concept when he pioneered the first active-hydraulic, ground-following, individual row opener.
Seeing the destructive nature of tillage first hand on his own farm, Norbert set out to find a better way to precisely seed the crop without having to till the land. The move to no-till would help to conserve precious moisture and reduce fuel and equipment operating costs. One-pass seed and fertilizer placement was the goal, but not at the sacrifice of sound agronomics, accurate seed placement and optimal stand establishment.
In the spring of 1992, the first opener prototype was built and used to seed over 1,000 acres on Norbert Beaujot’s farm. Since then, SeedMaster has continued to refine and innovate the opener and air delivery systems to provide a no-till air drill that is second to none for growers around the world.
Along the way, Norbert helped farmers move toward a more sustainable way of farming that reduces wind and water erosion and improves crop productivity and farm profitability.
SeedMaster helps farmers grow better crops—more profitably. We build the lowest-maintenance seeding systems on the market, with terrain-following openers that place seed and fertilizer with pinpoint accuracy.
It’s the reason we’ve developed the most advanced tanks and metering systems available, allowing you to space canola with near-singulation accuracy down the row, and apply high rates of fertilizer on large drills with ease.
And it’s why we offer the largest air drills in North America—up to 100 feet wide—so you can seed more acres per day and get crops in the ground—and out of the ground—quickly.
Choose from a variety of on-board or tow-behind tank systems, drill widths, and row spacing options. No matter what your seeding requirements, SeedMaster has the ultimate seeding solution for your farm.
At SeedMaster, we are a family business—and we’re farmers, too. We know you need to seed thousands of acres, year after year, with perfect product placement and no downtime. And we know that farming is all about finding new efficiencies to drive yield and profitability higher than ever.
Our focus is simple. Unbeatable precision and rugged reliability from tank to shank. That’s our philosophy. But we also understand the underlying drive behind farming—profitability without sacrificing sustainability. We view our customers as partners and work hard to earn and keep your trust. Our whole purpose is to be here to help you grow your farms through seeding innovation.
Our vision is to lead the agriculture industry by producing innovative, reliable and precise seeding solutions that bolster farm success and sustainability.
