Seed Corn Production

Simply put, we're seed corn experts.  Seed corn has made up roughly half of our business since 1995.  Your treatment schedule is a "zero failure" mission.  We have the equipment and logistical know how to work around your crews and still get the job done on schedule.  Our pilots are also experienced pollinators.

  • Superior Yields
  • Pollination
  • 100% Custom Application

Unmanned Solutions

We really don't like telling anybody "No, we can't do that." Instead, we're setting up an unmanned division. Initially we will offer aerial application solutions via drone, followed by imaging solutions for your agronomy needs.

  • Small fields, test plots, or pivot corners not economical to spray with full sized manned aircraft
