Environmental Tillage Systems (ETS) announced 21st Century Equipment as the first SoilWarrior dealer in the U.S. Based out of Scottsbluff, Neb., 21st Century Equipment will sell SoilWarrior zone tillage and nutrient application equipment throughout their sales territory in western Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming.

This new partnership allows ETS to expand their sales efforts and reach a predominant strip-tillage market. 

“In keeping with our brand, we’re continuously trying new technology to find measurable and repeatable value for our growers,” remarks Owen Palm, CEO, 21st Century Equipment. “The Soil Warrior is another example of this; the design incorporates fertilizer into the seed bed in a manner that will make a measurable difference in crop production. We’ve run this machine in both beet and corn ground, and seen bumps in yield along with reductions in the cost of fertilizer.” 21st Century will conduct several strip till field comparison trials this crop year to validate learnings from the 2016 crop year.

“We are proud of this new partnership with 21st Century Equipment,” said Brent Brueland, ETS Sales VP. ETS has experienced significant growth in recent history, a trend that is expected to continue as more growers realize the benefits of focusing on soil health. “ETS is in a prime position to expand and reach our next business milestone with the support from their sales and service team.”
