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.
