AN IDEA IS BORN

While plowing a field of corn stalks, Ron Schlagel, of Torrington, Wyoming, thought to himself, 'Why am I doing this?' He started to remember all the problems he was causing himself. Plowing was just the beginning of a series of tillage steps needed to prepare the soil for planting. Even when the crop was in the ground he left himself wide open to wind and water erosion. He knew there had to be a better way. Schlagel began to experiment with minimum tillage. He tried several different methods without success. Designing a new machine was the only way to accomplish his goal to make a perfect seed bed in fewer passes, and to incorporate chemicals. A single machine that would work any type of soil.

A COMPANY IS BORN

The implement Ron created is the TILL-N-PLANT. The TILL-N-PLANT strip tills in front of row crop planters. It has planter style markers to lay out the field. Each row on the TILL-N-PLANT has a large flat coulter to cut trash, followed by a tillage shank and two wavy coulters positioned behind and to either side of the shank. A rolling basket follows to break up clods and firm up the seed bed. To ensure the planter follows the strip tilled, shanks are positioned behind the drive tires of the tilling tractor. The two mono rib gauge wheels create a 'V' mark that the planter tractor follows. This design proved to be very successful. Friends soon wanted Ron to build them a TILL-N-PLANT. Schlagel Mfg. Inc. was formed  in 1994 by Ron Schlagel and Harold Weis. The company has grown over the years and the buildings were expanded several times. 2004 marked the retirement of Harold Weis.
