Raven Industries Inc. and Seed Hawk Inc. have announced a collaboration agreement for developing innovative solutions intended to enhance air-seeder technology.

Beginning this fall, a new set of Raven precision application and planter section controls will be offered on the Seed Hawk line of seeders to control multiple functions from a single field computer, the Raven Viper Pro.

The first of these solutions combines fertilizer and seed section control from Raven with patent-pending seeder technology from Seed Hawk. Known as Sectional Control Technology™, this system will virtually eliminate costly seed and fertilizer overlaps automatically for the customer.

"By working together, our two companies can provide seeding solutions faster and more effectively," says Pat Beaujot, president of Seed Hawk. "We can take advantage of expertise and existing products from both companies and offer better products that deliver significant value to our customers."

Matt Burkhart, general manager of Applied Technology Division at Raven Industries adds, "This new collaboration further demonstrates Raven's commitment to expand its product line into seeding and planting applications."

This system will be offered through Seed Hawk dealers starting this fall, and both companies plan to offer more solutions in the future. "With a good working agreement in place, our companies can share ideas freely, which will lead to faster solutions," Beaujot explains.
