Presenter: No-till consultant and Exapta founder Matt Hagny
Matt Hagny, who grew up on a grain and cattle farm in South Dakota, migrated to Kansas in 1993 to set up shop as a consulting agronomist for no-till systems. He also offered a custom no-till seeding service from 1994 to 2001, which led to experiencing frustrations and realizing insights for better methods of no-till seeding.
Matt has traveled the globe, both as a consultant and a student of no-till, and has learned from some of the best. Matt conducts highly acclaimed "Seeding Schools" every year to assist farmers in better understanding all aspects of no-till seeding equipment, ranging in subject matter far beyond Exapta products.
