Save Time and Money in 2018

Many of you have experienced the frustration of technology that doesn't perform up to your standards. This can not only be a headache, but can be costly when calculating down time of a machine in season. For example, an agronomist that I talked with recently claimed yield loss reached 1 bushel per acre, per day on soybeans planted after the optimum date. HTS Ag has come up with 2 ways to combat this potential down-time, and reduce the frustration that can come with in-season technology challenges.
  1. HTS Ag Connected Support
    This plan included phone and remote support with AgriSync software, allowing us to see what you see. We work extra hours in the spring and fall to keep you running, from 7am to 10pm Monday - Saturday, and 12pm - 6pm on Sunday. Unlimited support for the year is only $650!
  2. HTS Ag Connected Support + On-site Visits
    A trained eye across your machine pre-season could potentially save you down-time and a parts run once you get in the field. In addition to the connected support listed above, one of our trained staff will make a visit to your farm before you go to the field each season, updating firmware, testing equipment, and getting your machine field ready. Once you are in the field, you can concentrate on the task you are there to complete, not fighting with technology to get it working the way you want it to. On-site visits with connected support for the year within an hour of our locations is only $1200!
Order one of our service plans before February and score additional savings!
Now through January 31st you can save $50 for connected support, or $200 for connected support + on-site visits! Contact your HTS Ag representative today to sign up!

How Grain Quality Management Helps Manage Risk

By OPIsystems

A challenging growing season, followed by a gruelling harvest. For many prairie farmers, the past couple of years have been a case study in the risks of crop production and a reminder of just how much is beyond the farmer's control.
