SeedMaster Summer Recap
Farm shows, crop tours, and conferences! It was a busy summer season at (SeedMaster/DOT)!
We had a very successful turn out at both major summer tradeshows, Canada’s Farm Progress Show (CFPS) and Ag in Motion (AIM)! Thank you to everyone came out to those events and spoke with us. Our customers are important to us and we love hearing from you.
Canada’s Farm Progress Show (CFPS) 2018
CFPS had a great a turn out with many people stopping by the booth space to chat with our sales staff, and our President and Founder, Norbert Beaujot, who took home an innovation award for each of his companies. SeedMaster received one for our new single rank seeder, the Ultra SR. It was an exciting show for us and we appreciate the interest that the Ultra SR generated.
The Ultra SR is the first single-rank knife opener system for large acre farms. It combines the best of SeedMaster technology including our proven dual-knife opener, two Ultra Pro II tanks and the Xeed system. Sitting at 60 feet wide with a 700 bushel total of seed, fertilizer and inoculant capacity the Ultra SR is designed to seed with precision and efficiency. The single-rank design is much better suited for uneven terrain and eliminates the ground-following variability and inaccuracies of other manufacturers 3 and 4 rank toolbars. How is this possible? SeedMaster’s innovative residue management system uses rotating spoked wheels that effectively process and pass the residue.
Ag in Motion (AIM)
Despite very high temperatures at AIM, we had an excellent turn out! We were able to showcase the best and latest Seedmaster tech in its natural environment…cropland. There is nothing quite like seeing our farm implements on the wide-open prairie landscapes! At AIM SeedMaster was a proud sponsor of the STARS event, “Field of Stars,” helping raise money for the STARS helicopter ambulance service. SeedMaster and our guests were treated to a delicious meal while being entertained by Brett Kissel. It was an amazing night and a perfect way to help this worthy cause! We also had the opportunity to do some plot seeding with the Ultra SR, it was an excellent place to test the new tech!
Book a Tour!
With the big shows complete, we have turned our attention closer to home. Unfortunately, the 2018 Crop Tour has been postponed indefinitely. Winter wheat seeding for both the Ultra SR and DOT have taken the new tech on the road, but we’re happy to host you on private tours of the SeedMaster Research Farm or the SeedMaster/DOT facilities in Emerald Park at any time that’s mutually agreeable.
We have some great things to showcase – an array of crops and the opportunity to get up close and personal with our 3000 acres of 15” rows. At our facilities in Emerald Park you can see where the magic happens and meet the crew! To book a tour, please click Here.
We hope all of you are having a safe and happy harvest!
