Precision Planting, LLC is the leading provider of practical and effective precision ag technologies to help make farmers smarter every season. Founded in Central Illinois, Precision Planting focuses on developing smart products that improve planting, liquid application and harvest operations on farms across the world. The company is also well-known for its unique and proven approach to addressing the current agronomic issues facing farmers and providing practical educational resources for improvement.
Precision Planting is different from other technology companies in that it takes the farmer’s existing equipment and maximizes the performance of the machinery. Adapting Precision Planting technologies is easy for farmers, saving them time and money, and making their planting and liquid applications more efficient. Precision Planting technologies have made the first pass with the planter the most important field trip all season long for thousands of farmer-customers who are able to seed a field or apply nutrients or seed treatments in a variable-rate method, with precise placement.
New technologies from Precision Planting are opening doors for farmers to take advantage of the data they collect on every field pass, from planting to harvest, and to use that data to increase production and profit potential by better managing input costs and ensuring the seeds they plant maintain their top-end yield potential at emergence and beyond.
In 2018, Precision Planting opened the Precision Technology Institute (PTI) in Pontiac, Illinois, a 200-acre agronomic research site, as well as a location where farmers can experience Precision Planting technologies and products in a real-farm environment.

Founded by Dave Terveen and Kevin Berg in 2008, Copperhead Agricultural Products was born from the idea of solving common farming challenges with new approaches. Our patented Furrow Cruiser and Drill Cruiser planter closing wheels provide farmers with greater control, greater success, and greater yields.
Following the success of our patented planter closing wheels, we expanded our range to offer high quality brackets for updating Case IH closing systems, planter arm conversion kits, and the Cruiser Xtreme, a cast iron version of our Furrow Cruiser planter closing wheel with unbeatable durability.
In August of 2018 we were able to license the patent for an aftermarket concave from the inventor Donnie Estes. We began manufacturing and marketing the Copperhead Concave systems, offering unbeatable durability, versatility and performance to the American farmer.
Just a short while later, in December of 2018, longtime inventor Phil Kester of RK Products decided to retire and asked that we carry on his brand and patents. We were humbled, as Phil is truly a one-of-a-kind person and quickly accepted with the purchase of his company. We moved the inventory from his place in East Moline, IL to our manufacturing facility in Humboldt, SD and got to work learning how to supply a whole new product line to farmers.
We are constantly on the lookout for honest-to-goodness farmer inventions that help farmers make their lives easier, more profitable, or both!! If you have a great idea or know of someone who does, give our sales manager, Jake Jass, a call and tell him about it!
Soil is more than just an anchor point for plant roots; We now know that our soils are a complex marketplace for plant and soil life to exchange resources. When healthy, this diverse ecosystem is a constant cycle of nutrient processing for plants and the tiny soil life forms underfoot.
Industrial agriculture’s singular pursuit of crop yield with synthetic fertilizers has degraded this soil system, leaving many soils looking much like our human diet crisis (overfed and undernourished). In contrast, the regenerative agriculture movement prioritizes natural soil interactions to provide a sound and sustainable food system that’s good for the environment, farmers, and consumers. In partnership with Heliae and its soil amendment product, PhycoTerra, farmers are able to contribute to this regenerative agriculture movement while feeding their soil and improving its performance.
