Horsch has roots that span back over 25 years and over two continents. Back in the early 1980’s small grain farming practices were very different that today. Mulitple pass operations, more tillage, and a very long process were the traditions just to get a crop planted. Seeing this problem, Kevin Anderson set his mind to make wheat planting a one pass operation. Through trials and many hours in building models, Kevin introduced the Anderson Opener to the market in 1984. The Anderson Opener was the first ever opener of its kind, placing fertilizer and seed in a way to maximize crop stand and yield. Using twin row and deep fertilizer banding technology wrapped into one package, the Anderson Opener revolutionized small grains planting.
