We Are Ag Leader - Adam Gittins
By Marisa Kuha, Ag Leader

Our dedicated dealer network is the backbone of our company. Take a second to meet some of the local precision experts across the country, and around the world.

What is your name, position, dealership & location: Adam Gittins, General Manager at HTS Ag. Our headquarters are in Harlan, Iowa, with staff across the state of Iowa.

How long have you been selling Ag Leader products? I started working with Ag Leader products when I worked in Tech Support for Ag Leader in 2001. I quickly saw the economic value of technology on the farm, and served in a sales capacity for Ag Leader, working trade shows, customer trainings, and other events. I moved to southwest Iowa and started working for HTS Ag in 2005. This year makes 17 years I have been selling and working with Ag Leader products.

What Can SureDrive Do For You?

By Ag Leader

I do not have to tell you how crucial seed spacing and singulation is to yield, it’s an item all farmers know. The main purpose of SureDrive® is to provide consistent meter control for the purpose of optimal singulation and seed spacing.

But it's more than that. Less maintenance, simplified electrical and mechanical components on the planter and an easy install are additional pluses of the SureDrive electric planter drive.

SureDrive Turn Compensation

By Chad Swindoll, Ag Leader

The inner and outer rows of a planter travel faster or slower than the center of the planter when turning. Seeds planted on interior rows are spaced too closely. Seeds on exterior rows are spaced too far apart.

SureDrive compensates through turns to maintain correct seed spacing by adjusting the speed of the seed meter at each row to preserve yield lost by conventional planters through misplaced seeds.

Airflow Rate is Key to the Natural Air Drying of Grain
By OPI Integris

Natural air drying uses the drying potential of unheated natural air to dry the damp/moist grain to safe storage moisture levels. Natural air drying minimizes energy consumption and improves grain quality. The success of natural air drying depends on several factors such as seasonal local weather conditions, initial grain moisture, grain type, and in-bin aeration system design. However, airflow rate is the key to effective and timely drying of grain for long term safe storage.

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!
